Video: Kevin Porter Jr. leaves game vs. Timberwolves after injuring knee

Kevin Porter Jr., Cavs

Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kevin Porter Jr. suffered an injury during the Cavs’ game against the Minnesota Timberwolves Sunday night.

Peep the clip below to see the incident. Porter Jr., the 30th overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, went down on a non-contact knee injury.

Porter Jr. was helped off the floor by the Cavaliers trainers. There’s still no report on what the injury is but as he was being carried off, he put very little weight on his knee.

Kevin Porter Jr. entered the game averaging 8.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game across 21.9 minutes of play. The 19-year-old been part of the Cavs’ second unit.

But against the Wolves, the young gun was inserted into the starting line up in place of Kevin Love who was deemed inactive. Porter Jr. will join Larry Nance Jr. (knee soreness) and Dylan Windler (stress reaction in left leg) in the Cavs’ injury list.
