Kyrie Irving sits out 2nd half vs. Pacers with

The Celtics are now down three starters.

Kyrie Irving sat out a game against the Bulls on Monday. Let’s just hope that it’s soreness and nothing more serious. It’s been reported that after breaking his kneecap in the 2015 Finals, Irving is still due a follow up procedure on his left knee. The Celtics are already down Jaylen Brown (concussion protocol) and Al Horford (sick).

UPDATE: Here’s some quotes from the post game pressers:

Irving says that his knee has “felt achy” for the past week, but is “not concerned” with the injury. The Celtics have the visiting Wizards on Wednesday and then travel to play the Magic and Pelicans on Friday and Sunday. He could conceivably sit vs. Washington, not make the trip to Orlando, and meet the team in New Orleans. That’s a week’s rest.
