The Boston Celtics have announced that Kyrie Irving is officially ruled out from the rest of the regular season and playoffs. Irving underwent a minimal knee surgery on March 24th to help reduce swelling.
According to the press release Irving is now expected out 4-5 months as he will not have two screw removed to avoid further infection in his left patella. The Celtics are currently in the second seed in the Eastern Conference (53-25).
The announcement on Thursday rules the All-Star guard alongside Gordon Hayward and Marcus Smart both out of action for a Celtic team expected to contend for a championship this season.
