Irving to miss playoffs

Kyrie Irving

Will be updated.A person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press that Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving will miss the remainder of the regular season and playoffs after undergoing surgery on his left knee.

On Thursday, the Celtics announced that Irving will have two screws removed from his left knee on Saturday and miss 4-5 months.

Irving hasn't played since March 11 and says he won't dwell on what might have been.

The Celtics could face the Miami Heat (No. 6), the Washington Wizards (No. 7) or the Milwaukee Bucks (No. 8) in the first round of the playoffs.

"This season was only a snapshot of what's to come from me", he said in his post. He is expected to make a full recovery in four-five months, the team said. "The fracture in Irving's patella has completely healed, and his knee remains structurally sound". Trust Me. "The journey back to the top of Mt. Everest continues". The news that Irving won't be coming back is a major blow to the second-place Celtics' chances of making it through the Eastern Conference.

Poulter trumps Hossler in play-off to earn Masters invite
Hossler's quest for his first PGA title ended in disaster after finding bunkers with his first two shots when replaying the 18th. Spieth had an eagle, five birdies and just one bogey in his 66, while a bogey at the last cost Grillo outright third place.

Irving was having a fantastic season for the Celtics, who acquired him in August in a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"Let's go Celtics! Celtics fans, I look forward to hearing how loud it gets in the TD Garden during the playoffs and experiencing how intense the environment gets". The Celtics will now rely on guard Terry Rozier, who has filled in admirably during Irving's absence, but is no Kyrie Irving. He'll be out for 4-5 months.

Veteran Al Horford and second-year forward Jaylen Brown have also had their moments over the second half of the season.

As the Miami Heat (sixth spot) and Milwaukee Bucks (eighth spot) are only separated by half a game, the Celtics are now scheduled to face the Washington Wizards.
