Kyrie Irving has a sore left shoulder and did not practice on Wednesday.
He is also going to be questionable to play against the 76ers on Thursday. Irving played a season-high 41 minutes on Tuesday, and he's also in a bad slump to start 2018 at just 35.4 FG% in those five games. If he can't go, Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin figure to pick up the most playing time. Hopefully, he is only being held out of practice as a precaution. Jan 17 - 2:19 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 27 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and five triples in Tuesday's 116-113 overtime loss to the Pelicans.

This was Boston's second game in the last 10 days, but the well-rested Irving got off to a slow start before erupting with a 16-point third quarter. He finished just 8-of-24 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with an uncharacteristic six turnovers -- this was his third game of the season with that many. Expect a more efficient game on Thursday vs. Philly.
Jan 16 - 10:32 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 21 points with six rebounds, four assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

He didn't shoot the ball well yet again, making 8-of-22 from the field in this win. This team continues to win with defense and rank 25th in offense over their six-game winning streak, and the Celtics have held their opponent to less than 90 points in three consecutive games for the first time since the 2014-15 team. Irving should be better than his recent cold spell and he's still making a case to be a first-round asset going forward.
Jan 6 - 9:12 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 16 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one 3-pointer during a 91-84 win over the Wolves on Friday.

Boston's defense was the key as they've held two playoff teams in the Wolves and Cavs to under 90 points in their last two games. The Celtics also have fixed their late-game issues since Christmas with a five-game winning streak while Kyrie has been just OK by his standards. He averaged 20.4 points, 6.4 boards, 5.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.8 treys on 43.2 percent from field in that span. He gets a great matchup against the Nets on Saturday.
Jan 5 - 11:03 PM

Kyrie Irving said part of the reason he decided to leave the Cavs was that he felt like they didn't want him there.

"[Leaving Cleveland] was inevitable," Irving said. "I could feel it... They didn't want me there." Irving reportedly caught wind of the Cavs front office including his name in trade talks back in June, which was a factor in prompting him to request a trade out of Cleveland. For what it's worth when LeBron James was asked about Irving's assertion that the Cavs didn't want him he simply responded: "That makes absolutely no sense." Tonight should be a fun matchup between the two former teammates in Boston, and Irving is on the DFS radar under the revenge game narrative.

The Celtics earned their fourth straight win on Sunday, led by Kyrie Irving's game-high 28 points, eight rebounds, four 3-pointers, two assists, two steals and one block.

Boston was coming off a massive comeback victory vs. Houston, in a game they one trailed by 26 points, and they fended off the visiting Nets tonight, 108-105. Irving sank 10-of-21 shots and all four of his free throw attempts, and he's scored at least 20 points in 11 consecutive games. Boston's next game comes Wednesday vs. LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas and the visiting Cavaliers.

Kyrie Irving scored 21 points with two rebounds, eight assists and three 3-pointers during a 102-91 win in Charlotte on Wednesday.

Unlike on Christmas and recently, the Celtics were great in the fourth quarter with a 26-16 edge to get a win. In their last 11, they've ranked 27th in the NBA in fourth-quarter defensive rating, so maybe this game can help them lock down defensively like they were in November. Irving will be fine regardless and maybe the defensive struggles can help his upside.

Kyrie Irving had 20 points, five assists and four rebounds vs. the Wizards on Monday, making 8-of-18 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with a pair of 3-pointers.

Irving didn't have any steals or blocks in 34 minutes tonight, and the Celtics collapsed down the stretch of a 111-103 home loss. Boston has dropped three of their past four games, and will look to get back on track against Charlotte on Wednesday.
Mon, Dec 25, 2017 08:52:00 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Saturday's blowout 117-92 win over Chicago.

Irving needed just 28 minutes to score his 25 points, adding three rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and five 3-pointers with just a single turnover. The Celtics were plus-33 during Irving's playing time, and that's now four straight games—and six out of seven—in which Irving has gone for at least 25 points.
Sat, Dec 23, 2017 11:12:00 PM

Kyrie Irving hit 12-of-27 shots and six 3-pointers for 32 points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal with just one turnover in Thursday's loss to the Knicks.

The six triples tied his season high and he's in cruise control right now, scoring at least 30 points in three straight games, five of his last six, and seven of his 11 December games. The only problem is that the Celtics have now dropped two straight games after losing to the Heat on Wednesday night.
Thu, Dec 21, 2017 10:58:00 PM

Kyrie Irving hit 12-of-23 shots and five 3-pointers for 30 points, one rebound and five assists in 29 minutes of Monday's exciting 112-111 win over the Pacers.

The Celtics blew a 19-point lead and found themselves down five near the end of regulation, but Kyrie's teammate, Terry Rozier, saved the day with a big steal and dunk to give the Celtics the win. As for Irving, he's starting to crush, scoring at least 30 points in three of his last four games, although tonight's line was lacking in many ways. Irving could be ready for a huge second half for the Celtics.

Kyrie Irving posted 20 points with six assists across 30 minutes in Saturday's 102-93 road win against the Grizzlies.

Irving was good for 7-of-17 from the field while hitting 4-of-9 from the behind the 3-point line and he ended up with a plus-20. He is a perfect 11-of-11 from the charity stripe over the past two games and he has at least one 3-pointer in 12 straight outings dating back to Nov. 22. He is averaging 28.7 PPG over his past three contests since returning from a one-game absence due to a quadriceps injury.

Kyrie Irving posted a game-high 33 points but it wasn't enough to help his team avoid a loss against the visiting Jazz.

Irving hit 11-of-25 from the field while going 2-of-8 from behind the 3-point line and a perfect 9-of-9 from the free-throw line. He also chipped in with six assists, four rebounds and just two turnovers, so he did everything in his power to help his team win. That's back-to-back 33-point efforts since he returned from a quadriceps injury, so obviously he's back to 100 percent.

Kyrie Irving scored 33 points with one rebound, seven assists, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Nuggets during a 124-118 win on Wednesday.

That's a season high in scoring for the Celtics as they also surrendered their most points this season. A 30-point game is nothing special for Irving these days with seven of those in his last 13 games, after he had just one in his first 15 as a Celtic. As per usual, Irving was tremendous in the fourth with his nine points on just five used possession (four FGA, one turnover) and his two blocks also came in the fourth. Irving's 40.9 usage rate in the fourth is even more impressive when you consider he has a 59.6 TS% and he keeps his turnovers down. Apparently, coach Brad Stevens has a secret about making his point guards play amazing late in games.

Kyrie Irving (quad) will play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

Irving should be busy on the offensive end with Al Horford (rest) taking the night off, and with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets, he's certainly someone to consider throwing out there in daily leagues. Get him active.
