Duke in the NBA: Kyrie Irving Done For the Season

Kyrie Irving

Irving will undergo a second surgical procedure on his left knee and is expected to be sidelined four-to-five months, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports.

The five-time All-Star finishes his season averaging 24.4 points, 5.1 assists, and 3.8 rebounds. Irving should be ready for training camp heading into the 2018-19 campaign if everything progresses as expected over the summer, but look for additional updates to be provided as he reaches milestones in his recovery.

Boston still jumped to their current slot at No. 2 in the Eastern Conference, seeing the development of Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Terry Rozier in the interim.

That experience, which will be even more valuable when earned on the playoff stage, should strengthen Boston going forward and make them an even deeper team than could have been imagined.

"The hardest thing to do sometimes is accept the uncontrollable things life throws at you", Irving said in a statement on Instagram.

Irving finished by saying: "Let's go Celtics!"

News of Irving's season-ending surgery was first reported by ESPN. It's simply a test of your perseverance and Will, to be present, even in the wake of what's going on.

What's more impressive is the fact Ibrahimovic's bicycle-kick was the fourth goal he scored against England that day. Ramos also has three senior honours with his country - one FIFA World Cup and two European Championship titles.


In the upcoming surgery, two screws will be removed. Irving recently developed an infection at the site of the screws, and now they must be taken out. Everyone remembers the shot he drilled to win a title with Cleveland in 2016. Conversely, Russell Westbrook, Jason Kidd and Dwyane Wade have all come back from serious knee injuries and there is no reason why Irving can't follow their example next season.

In the East, the Celtics are locked in as the No. 2 seed behind Toronto.

Though there was a belief that Irving would be able to return three to six weeks after undergoing the procedure, which would have put him in line to return by at least the second round of the playoffs, the report is that Irving will sit out the remainder of the season. That leaves the third place in the conference as the most sought-after position in the East right now.

Unlike the Wizards and Bucks, the Heat don't have one or two clear-cut offensive superstars for Stevens' defense to focus on stopping - which means no one on the Celtics can afford to take a defensive possession off. Spoelstra has approximately 400 different lineups equally adept at cutting the Celtics' jugular if Boston is anything less than flawless on either end of the floor.

Offseason pickup Marcus Morris averaged almost 20 points a game last month and was key in Boston's recent six-game win streak.

However, the Miami Heat (No. 6), Wizards (No. 7), and Milwaukee Bucks (No. 8) are separated by just a half game.
