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.

For the Celtics, their star point guard, while banged up, should still be able to play and perform at a high level. The problem is that this kind of injury never really goes away. Irving is always going to be dealing with soreness that can fluctuate between forcing him to sit out a game and not really giving him problems.
