Kyrie Irving needs knee surgery, out for playoffs

06 April 2018

The Celtics just recently made an official announcement on Thursday afternoon where they confirmed he'll miss the regular season and playoffs and Irving will have another procedure on his knee to remove two screws.

About two weeks ago, the Celtics announced Irving was set to have surgery on his left knee to alleviate pain. Irving had what the team characterized as a "minimally invasive" procedure on March 24. But it is a blow to a Celtics team that had been playing well despite a run of recent injuries to key players. The team still has young swingmen Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, plus veteran big men Al Horford, but losing Irving and Hayward on the perimeter will make them a far easier out come playoff time. He's made the most of his extra floor time, averaging 11.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists - all career highs.

They lost only once all season with a full rotation: at Creighton, 89-83, not coincidentally their final defeat of the season. This one was only handsome to one team. "I think both of us are looking for guys that want to be in college", Wright said.

Irving has averaged 24.4 points and 5.1 assists per game this season for the Celtics, who are now the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and have already clinched a playoff spot.

The team had said the knee was structurally sound and the kneecap healed, but the wire had been putting pressure on the knee. On opening night, free agent pick-up Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome ankle injury five minutes into his Celtics debut and hasn't played since. Trust Me. "The journey back to the top of Mt. Everest continues".

Terry Rozier, a second-year guard from Louisville, who has been starting for Irving, will be forced to take on greater responsibility in the playoffs.

The Celtics are seeded second in the Eastern Conference, behind the Toronto Raptors and ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers in third. The Celtics are expected to face the Milwaukee Bucks, Miami Heat or Washington Wizards in the first round.
