Irving (knee) totaled 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt), nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block over 25 minutes in Team LeBron's win over Team Giannis in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Irving's knee, which has caused him to miss six of his last 11 games, didn't seem to bother him during the All-Star Game as he made a number of key plays down the stretch. Irving will try to guide his team to a playoff berth coming out of the All-Star break.
Irving (knee) said that he's healthy and will play during Sunday's All-Star game, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.
Irving has missed six of the past 11 games, but he's healthy enough to participate in Sunday's exhibition. During the 2018 All-Star game, he posted 13 points, nine assists, seven rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes.
Irving (knee) will travel to Charlotte for All-Star weekend with his personal trainer and the team's physical therapist to continue his rehab, Steven Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports.
A sprained right knee kept Irving on the sidelines for a pair of games heading into the All-Star break, but it sounds like the point guard could be cleared to return for Sunday's exhibition. Either way, Irving should be ready to go following the break, barring any setbacks.
Irving (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Pistons, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Due to a sprained right knee, we won't see Irving again until after the All-Star break. For Wednesday's matchup, with Terry Rozier (illness) doubtful, the Celtics' backcourt will be depleted. Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown are candidates to have the ball in their hands more often.
Coach Brad Stevens said Irving (knee) will not play Tuesday against the 76ers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Irving suffered a knee injury during Saturday's loss to the Clippers, and while the issue isn't thought to be anything overly serious, the guard will miss at least one game as a result. Stevens wouldn't comment on Irving's status for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, though it wouldn't be surprising to see the Celtics play it safe and keep the guard out as precaution ahead of the All-Star break. In his absence, Terry Rozier will likely start and benefit from an increased role.
