Kyrie Irving Won't Play Wednesday vs. Wizards Because of Knee Injury

Kyrie Irving Won't Play Wednesday vs. Wizards Because of Knee Injury

The news keeps getting worse for the Boston Celtics.

The C's hard-nosed guard injured his thumb during Boston's loss to the Indiana Pacers on Sunday night.

Kyrie Irving will miss Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards with knee soreness, according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg. Wojnarowski reports that the Celtics believe it is nothing more than knee tendonitis and that Irving is day-to-day and won't need to miss much time. As the source pointed out, "a sprained thumb usually means torn ligaments".

The Celtics are 4.3 points per 100 possessions better this season with Smart on the court, although surprisingly most of the bump is on the offensive end.

The Celtics have succeeded this season despite some notable injuries.

The Celtics are also dealing with an injury to second-year forward Jaylen Brown (concussion).
