After Wednesday's game at Quicken Loans Arena, Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving admitted his right knee is not 100 percent.

"I'm trying not to let it bother me," Irving said. "It's still bruised. The only way it'll get better is to the sit out the rest of the season, and I'm not doing that."

Irving played 38 minutes in the 104-101 victory over the Utah Jazz. It was a rough-and-tumble game, and the point guard took several hard falls.

Cavs coach Byron Scott said he found out Irving's knee was bothering him by reading the daily media clips on Thursday morning.

He said after practice, if Irving's knee gets any worse, he would have no hesitations about shutting him down.

The news caused a furor on Twitter.

A Cavs spokesman clarified the team has no plans to rest Irving.

"If he said it was bothering him again to the point that he can't perform like I know he's capable of, yeah (I'd considering shutting him down)," Scott said.
