Kyrie Irving injury update: Celtics reportedly confident knee soreness isn't too serious
The Celtics finally get some positive injury news in relation to Kyrie Irving
Kyrie Irving has been in and out of the Celtics lineup the last few months due to knee soreness. On Sunday, Irving had to leave the Boston's loss to the Pacers early with soreness in the same knee that has been bothering him all season. There was concern that the injury could be serious.
