Irving (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.
Irving is set to miss a fourth straight game to rest his sore left knee and it's slightly concerning that he's being ruled out a day in advance. That said, the Celtics aren't going to rush him back and risk putting additional strain on the injury, so Irving will likely be brought along slowly. His next opportunity to take the court will come on Friday against Portland, but tentatively consider him questionable for that contest. With both Marcus Smart (thumb) and Jaylen Brown (concussion) also being ruled out again, Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin should see big minutes in the backcourt.
Irving (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Brian Robb of the Boston Sports Journal reports.
Irving is slated to miss a third straight game Sunday, as he continues to rest his sore left knee. An updated timetable has not been provided, however, so he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis moving forward. Irving's next shot to take the court will be Tuesday against the Thunder. With Jaylen Brown (concussion) and Marcus Smart (thumb) also still out, Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin should continue to see an uptick in playing time and production. Rozier will pick up a third straight start.
Irving (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.
Irving has missed the last two games with a sore left knee, but has now been upgraded to questionable prior to Sunday's contest. Look for him to test out the knee during morning shootaround, and potentially pregame warmups, before a final decision is made on his availability. If Irving were to sit out a third straight game, Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin would handle point guard duties, especially with Marcus Smart (thumb) still sidelined.
Irving (knee) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Magic.
The news comes courtesy of the team's game notes, and while those can change, the thought all along as that Irving would remain out Friday after undergoing an MRI on his sore left knee earlier in the week. With Marcus Smart (thumb) and Jaylen Brown (concussion) also sidelined, the Celtics will again be shorthanded in the backcourt, meaning the likes of Shane Larkin and Terry Rozier will be called upon for increased minutes.
Irving (knee) underwent an MRI, the results of which were negative, and will travel with the team for their upcoming two-game road trip, Brian Robb of BostonSportsJournal.com reports. He's unlikely to play Friday against Orlando, however.
The team hasn't gone as far to rule out Irving -- who has avoided a serious injury -- for Friday's contest, though it seems likely they would choose to play it safe with their star player and have him return Sunday against the Pelicans. More information about the situation will presumably arrive following the team's Friday morning shootaround.
