Kyrie Irving day-to-day with strained right knee

Kyrie Irving day-to-day with strained right knee

The Celtics guard is listed as day-to-day.

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving was listed as day-to-day by the National Basketball Association club on Sunday after an MRI revealed he suffered a right knee strain in a loss Saturday.

Montrezl Harrell, who led the Clippers with 21 points, forced two crucial turnovers inside the last two minutes as Patrick Beverley also drained a pair of three-pointers in the final stretch as the Celtics sorely missed star guard Kyrie Irving in the second half.

Irving missed the end of last season and the playoffs after having surgery on his left knee to remove two screws from his patella that were inserted in 2015 to fix a fracture he suffered during that year's NBA Finals. He had the screws removed in April. The four Eastern Conference teams ahead of the Celtics made major upgrades at or after the trade deadline: Nikola Mirotic for the Milwaukee Bucks, Marc Gasol for the Toronto Raptors, Wes Matthews for the Indiana Pacers and Tobias Harris for the Philadelphia 76ers. Even though we're winning, it's not fun.

Kate Miller-Heidke to represent Australia at Eurovision Song Contest 2019
I want to thank all the artists who made the first ever selection show a spectacular success and all the fans who got behind them. We did it! It was a fierce competition and I'm beyond thrilled that you chose me to represent Australia at Eurovision 2019 .

"To be in this position and have a chance to compete for something like that, it means a lot to me", Morris said.

Reports have been leaking out all season about the discontent within the Celtics' locker room, from players being unhappy with the amount of court time Gordon Hayward is seeing, to Kyrie Irving's wishy-washy commitment to his future as a Celtic, few things have gone right this season, a campaign that many saw ending with an NBA Finals berth.

Especially early on in the season, we saw multiple players struggle.

This is about the last thing the Boston Celtics needed. "When I look at us I just see a bunch of individuals". "This team, I feel a lot different about and I want to push us to that position". Whatever it takes, I'm with it. If they want to take me out of the starting lineup, get some juice in there, I'm with it. The Celtics haven't played since Saturday and they are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings, but I think the 76ers are a team on the rise and they will prove that with a statement win at home in this one. "That's the goal. The trade deadline's over". "Obviously, we've got a ways to go, but the really great teams get there". Just moments later, however, Irving came up limping when trying to run around a pick on defense. This is what we're going with.
