Kyrie Irving Is Out For The Rest Of The Season & Playoffs After Knee Surgery

Published

This Saturday, Celtics guard Kyrie Irving will undergo knee surgery to remove two screws implanted in his left patella after the patellar fracture he suffered during the NBA Finals in 2015. He is expected to make a full recovery in 4-5 months after the knee surgery, making him miss the rest of the season & playoffs.  He also wrote on his Instagram :


” The hardest thing to do sometimes is accept the uncontrollable things life throws at you. You try consistently to learn, grow, and prepare everyday to equip your mind, body, and spirit with tools to deal with some of those things, but I feel when those moments arise they all give you a sense of unfulfillment, simply because it puts some of your professional journey and goals on a brief hold. It’s simply a test of your perseverance and Will, to be present, even in the wake of what’s going on. In this case, finding out I have an infection in my knee is definitely a moment that I now accept and move past without holding on to the all the what ifs, proving the nay-Sayers completely f***ing wrong, and accomplishing the goals I’ve set out for the team and myself. This season was only a snapshot of what’s to come from me. Trust Me. “The journey back to the top of Mt. Everest continues.” #StandingRockSiouxTribe 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. Thank you all! “
