The Boston Celtics announced Saturday that Kyrie Irving underwent successful left knee surgery to remove two screws from his patella.
Danny Ainge said that, “The surgery went exactly as planned, and we expect Kyrie to be fully healthy for training camp in the fall.”
The Celtics are locked into the second seed in the eastern conference, and have three games left this season. After a season riddled by injuries to top players, Boston will most likely have Irving and Gordon Hayward back once training camp begins.
In the meantime, the Celtics are scheduled to take on the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST at TD Garden.
