Dr. Chris Chihlas, an orthopedic specialist with Southcoast Health, said that as long as Kyrie Irving’s procedure was because of irritation to his patella tendon and not due to kneecap trouble, then he should be fine moving forward.
Kyrie underwent a “minimally invasive procedure” to address the soreness he was experiencing in his left knee a couple weeks ago after which Danny Ainge confirmed that the procedure should not have an adverse effect on his career. “When I say it shouldn’t affect his career, I’m saying his knee is very structurally sound,” Ainge told 98.5 the Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich show last week. “It isn’t like a long-term thing.” Irving is coming off an impressive year where he appeared in 60 games averaging 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game and as long as he proves he is healthy he should remain an elite guard.
