LeBron James had a heartbroken reaction after Kyrie Irving went down with an injury during Game 4 of the Milwaukee Bucks-Brooklyn Nets second-round playoffs series. The point guard suffered a right ankle sprain after landing on the foot of Giannis Antetokounmpo, leaving the game with 6:04 left in the second quarter. 

The entire NBA community was concerned about Kyrie's pain, including his former title-winning teammate. Bron took to social media to voice his frustrations with Kyrie's situation with a now-deleted tweet.

This is not a good situation for the Nets. They already lost James Harden in Game 1 of the same series. Injuries have been a nightmare for them all season long, and that doesn't seem to be changing soon. 

Irving missed the remainder of the game after being helped off the court. We hope he's doing fine and returns to the next game of the series. The Bucks took advantage of his absence and beat the Nets to tie the series 2-2, with NBA fans criticizing Kevin Durant after failing to win without Irving and Harden by his side. 

Even though their relationship hasn't been the best, LeBron still cares about Kyrie and he doesn't hesitate to show it.
