Kyrie Irving News

Kyrie Irving    G  Celtics

 

 

Kyrie Irving took over during a 121-112 win at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, scoring 31 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in 35 minutes. Make that the 17th time he's hit 30 points this season thanks to his 15-point third quarter on 116.7 eFG% in that frame. The Celtics seem to be back with two solid wins in the second half after they were slipping on defense entering the All-Star break. With just a 0.5 game deficit behind the Raptors, it's hard to imagine Kyrie resting before April.

Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 33 points with one rebound, eight assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Clippers during a 129-119 loss on Wednesday. Coach Brad Stevens gave Irving a quick hook in the third quarter as he replaced him with Terry Rozier at the 7:37 mark in the third quarter. After the game, Irving was not in the best mood with some profanity and saying he can't even think about All-Star right now. "I’m thinking about so many things right now, just from a standpoint of how to be better," Irving said. "Because I know what’s coming. I have to communicate that with our guys." The Celtics are 2.0 games behind the Raptors and end their first half on a three-game losing streak.

Kyrie Irving scored 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting on Sunday, to go with five assists, one 3-pointer, three rebounds and two turnovers in 26 minutes. Irving didn't log a single minute during the fourth with the game being a massive blowout, and the 121 points Cleveland put up was the most amount of points the Celtics have allowed this season. Jaylen Brown finished with five points, seven boards, one assist and one turnover; and Jayson Tatum ended his evening with nine points, two boards, one 3-pointer, one steal and two turnovers across 27 minutes. We'd expect a bounce-back effort from all these guys on Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

Kyrie Irving scored 21 points with five assists, two rebounds, two triples and two turnovers in 31 minutes vs. the Pacers on Friday. The Celtics were trailing by 21 points entering halftime, but clawed their way back into the game with a 34-17 third quarter. They ultimately fell short by six points, giving Boston their second loss in their last three games. As for Irving, he'll get his first shot at taking on the new-look Cavaliers on Sunday. The last time these two teams met, Irving was held in check for one of the few times this season, scoring 11 points on 5-of-14 shots.

Kyrie Irving carried the Celtics to a 110-104 win vs. the Wizards on Thursday, scoring 28 points with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block. Kyrie shot 9-of-19 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line with three turnovers in 33 minutes tonight. He missed three games recently with a right quad bruise but that's no longer an issue, and he projects as a top-20 fantasy player rest-of-season. Boston's deal for Kyrie looks even more impressive as they sit atop the Eastern Conference with the trade deadline in the rearview.

Kyrie Irving (quad) will start on Thursday against the Wizards. You've probably heard a lot about Kyrie Irving today, but none of it had to do with his minor quad injury. He should be headed for decent minutes against an Eastern Conference playoff team.

Kyrie Irving (quad) is probable for Thursday's game vs. Washington. Irving was likely going to see close to his full allotment of minutes on Tuesday, but the Celtics were run out of the building early. Teams will often list a player as probable for their next game after returning from an injury, so this doesn't mean he suffered a setback. His fantasy owners can deploy him like they normally would.

Kyrie Irving was back from his quad injury on Tuesday but played just 22 minutes and finished with 17 points, three assists, two 3-pointers and nothing else. His injury probably didn't even limit his minutes, as starters Al Horford and Jayson Tatum were right there with him in the low 20s. The Raptors blew the game open in the second quarter and it was mostly a garbage-time contest after that. Irving had missed three straight, so owners should just be thankful he's back. Hopefully he'll be ready for the Wizards on Thursday.

Kyrie Irving (quad) will return to the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Raptors, sending Terry Rozier back to the bench. The Celtics will go with their standard starting five of Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Al Horford and Aron Baynes tonight, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit for Irving, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active. While Rozier will take a bit of a hit with the return to the second unit, he should still see quality minutes with Marcus Smart (hand) unavailable.

Kyrie Irving (quad) said he will play Tuesday vs. the Raptors. Irving has missed three straight games due to the quad injury, but will make his return versus Toronto. No word yet on if the Celtics plan to limit Kyrie's minutes in his first game back. Terry Rozier, who has played well in Irving's absence, will get bumped back to the bench. However, Marcus Smart (hand) and Shane Larkin (knee) are still sidelined, which will allow Rozier to see plenty of playing time as a reserve.
