Celtics’ Kyrie Irving leaves game with sprained knee, out for night

Associated Press

Hopefully this doesn’t sideline him for long.

Kyrie Irving left the court during the second quarter of his Celtics hosting the Los Angeles Clippers after this play.

The Celtics announced he would not return due to a sprained knee. There are no further details as of now.

Irving had 14 points in the 14 minutes before his injury. He averaged 23.8 points per game on a ridiculous 60.1 true shooting percentage — he is at the top of the offensive pecking order for the Celtics. Boston is 5.8 points per 100 possessions better when Irving is on the court this season (all of that due to his offensive impact).
