    Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) put up 13 points on 6-of-13 shooting with nine rebounds and six assists in a Team LeBron win over Team Giannis in Sunday’s All-Star Game.

    He hit a 3-pointer and made some clutch plays down the stretch to help his team seal the win. Irving missed two games from this injury and should be good to go after the break for the Celtics and is a top-10 option for the remainder of the season.

    Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) says he is healthy and plans to play in Sunday's All-Star game.

    Irving missed the Celtics' last two games but fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to miss any more with the current injury. Terry Rozier was a hot pickup when Irving initially went down but now goes back to being a handcuff. Irving has put up top-10 per-game value this year with no holes in his fantasy game but he has already missed 11 games. He has missed at least 10 games in seven of his eight NBA seasons so this is something fantasy owners should already be used to.

    Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) is "very, very close" to a return and the Celtics would not be opposed to him playing in Sunday's All-Star game.

    Irving made the trip to Charlotte with his personal trainer a the team's physical therapist. Although he's missed the last two games, the Celtics wouldn't mind him participating in Sunday's game and Danny Ainge things that an exhibition contest might actually function as a good workout. Brad Stevens speculated that Irving would've been able to play on Friday or Saturday had the Celtics had a regular game, so it sounds like he won't miss much more time.

    Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Irving is said to be "day-to-day" but this does put his All-Star participation into question. With Terry Rozier also doubtful we may see a lot of Marcus Smart and Brad Wanamaker tonight.

    Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) has been ruled out vs. the 76ers on Tuesday.

    We knew Kyrie would probably miss this game but the right knee strain shouldn't keep him out for much longer. He was reported to be "day-to-day" but the C's might hold him out until after the All-Star break. Terry Rozier is worth owning everywhere while Irving is out.

    Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a right knee strain after undergoing an MRI and will be day-to-day going forward.

    The Celtics figure to keep a close eye on Irving but it doesn't look as though this will turn into an extended absence. Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart need to be rostered in all formats until Irving gets back to full strength.

    Kyrie Irving (knee) is considered to be day-to-day.

    His injury reportedly isn't serious and this is great news for Irving owners. Irving has been banged up this year so no one really knows exactly how long "day-to-day" will be but owners can only hope he'll be back out there as soon as possible. This obviously puts a damper on Terry Rozier's outlook going forward but he should still be owned as long as Irving is out.

    Kyrie Irving's sprained right knee "buckled a bit" according to Brad Stevens and he'll be evaluated on Sunday.

    There hasn't been any noise out of Boston on this, though Jayson Tatum responded to reporters asking if he was okay by saying 'yeah,' for whatever that is worth. Irving missed last season's playoffs because of his left knee last season, so at least this is the other knee. Fantasy GMs should hope that no news is good news at this point.

    Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a sprained knee and will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

    He leaves the game after logging 14 minutes and tallying 14 points, one rebound, two assists and one trey. It's time to grab Terry Rozier again, folks. The Celtics will take it easy on their prized guard, so it isn't unlikely that he'll sit out until after the All-Star Break.

    Kyrie Irving was escorted to the locker room by a trainer in Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Uh oh. Irving, for all of his fantastic per-game appeal, has managed to sour weekly contests with his habit of missing games every so often with this-and-that injuries. Hopefully, this one isn't something serious though. Stay tuned.

    Kyrie Irving led the Celtics in scoring in their 128-129 loss to the Lakers on Thursday with 24 points on 6-of-21 shooting to go with seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Irving started off hot, cooled off and then hit the go-ahead bucket late in the fourth quarter only to watch Rajon Rondo clinch the game at the buzzer. It's encouraging to see Irving distribute the ball and make plays for his teammates when he's off his game offensively and the uptick in assists shows developments in his game that are more than welcome in the fantasy world.

    Kyrie Irving (hip) will play on Thursday vs. the Lakers.

    Irving will return to the lineup after missing Tuesday's game vs. the Cavs. This means that Terry Rozier will go back to the bench and become less valuable in this matchup and those that have Kyrie can feel free to deploy him in all lineups. Hopefully he'll be able to stay available for good this time.

    Kyrie Irving (hip) will miss Tuesday's matchup with the Cavs.

    Irving has already missed three of the last seven games due to nagging issues, including a left hip strain. Terry Rozier should have a field day in a great matchup, and we wouldn't expect Irving to sit out for long, though it would become an issue if his random absences carried into the fantasy playoffs.

  • Box Score Breakdown: Celtics 134, Patriots 13

    Neil Rochlani breaks down the three games from Sunday.  Kyrie and the Celtics take down the Thunder.   DSJ and DeAndre Jordan start for the Knicks in a loss to Memphis and all eyes are still…

  • Kyrie Irving - G - Boston Celtics

    Kyrie Irving had his fourth straight double-double of 20-plus points in Sunday's 134-129 win over the Thunder, turning in another masterful performance with 30 points on 14-of-19 from the field, 11 assists, four rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer.

    Irving's double-double streak includes three games of 10-plus assists and one of 10 rebounds, though his three absences mean that the streak has occurred over Boston's last seven games. Either way, Kyrie has been absolutely on fire after a mediocre stretch in October. All the LeBron-related noise can be left aside as Irving is having a top-10 fantasy season.
