There’s growing confidence that Kyrie Irving’s knee soreness can be chalked up to a case of tendonitis and that the point guard won’t need to miss significant time.
Some eyebrows were raised when Danny Ainge said that Irving’s knee problems might be a chronic issue that needs to be monitored over the long-term, but there hasn’t been much internal dread about the current injury. The Celtics are expected to hold Irving out through the week, and with Marcus Smart’s injury and Shane Larkin’s limitations they’re down to Terry Rozier in the backcourt. He’s in line for a big week and a potentially huge finish to the season, depending on how quickly Irving can return to the court.
