Irving (face) will start at point guard for Tuesday's matchup with the Nets, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports.

Irving was held out of Sunday's game against the Raptors with a minor facial fracture, but as expected, he'll return to the court Tuesday after successfully going through walkthrough earlier in the day. He's been fitted for a mask and it could take Irving a few games to get used to it, though he's not expected to be on any sort of minutes restrictions.
