Kyrie Irving, a little more than a week removed from having screws removed from his surgically repaired left knee, was walking around, a sight that caught many off guard, Brad Stevens included.
While Irving’s timetable remains steady and he is expected to be out for at least four months, seeing him around his teammates and coaching staff during the Celtics’ Game 1 win over the Bucks, was indeed an encouraging sign. “They feel great about his (progress),” Stevens said. “That’s encouraging. Again, he’s going to make a full recovery. Now that the screws are out we can see his early progress. It’s very good.” It’s a long road to recovery but Uncle Drew will hopefully be ready come training camp day next season.
