Former Cavaliers Point Guard Kyrie Irving Out For Remainder Of Season And Playoffs

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving has always struggled with knee injuries, just ask Cleveland fans. And now those same issues will hold Irving out for the remainder of the regular season and playoffs, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Irving has been in the playoffs three times in his career, all with the Cavaliers, and has missed substantial time in past runs. The most serious time he missed was in the 2015 NBA Finals when he broke his kneecap in Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors. This will be the first time he misses an entire postseason run.

Even going as far back to his playing days at Duke University, Irving missed most of his only season for the Blue Devils with a right toe injury that held his short college career to only eleven games. Irving would still go on to be drafted first overall by the Cavaliers but the injury problems were already there to start his professional career.

In an earlier report from cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon this season, Irving reportedly told Cleveland that if he wasn’t traded, he would elect to have minimal knee surgery over playing for the team.
