Celtics’ Irving to undergo minor knee procedure

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving will undergo a minimally invasive procedure to alleviate irritation in his left knee on Saturday, the team announced Friday.

Irving has been dealing with left knee soreness all season. Further information will be provided following the procedure and there is no timetable for Irving’s return.

Irving had screws placed in his left knee in 2015 after suffering a fractured knee cap with the Cleveland Cavaliers during Game 1 of the 2015 NBA Finals. The screws remain there today.

In his first season with the Celtics after requesting a trade out of Cleveland, Irving has averaged 24.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 60 games.

  1. Zizic March 2018 points = 74; Kyrie = 48.
    Zizic, Hood, Clarkson, 7th pick vs Kyrie with sore knee…maybe Cavs did win that trade.
