...a blessing in disguise.

It will make the rotations more clear and give more shots to guys who probably need it more.

Hopefully Irving can get some rest and heal up and be FULLY healthy for the stretch run/playoff push.

But a non-contact injury is almost never good.

I think there is and should be a non zero chance we donít offer him the max.
This is the healthiest his knees have looked maybe since his high school years and he still misses games. Itís a bummer because he can be an mvp candidate but Ainge should consider his injury history... we donít want the next John wall contract on the payroll (especially combined with Hayward contract)

Um, not for the long run it won't be.  What will happen if this team gets on a roll and Kyrie comes back and they lose it again?  Nothing good I tell you.

An extended injury to Kyrie if follows us into the playoffs assures us of a first round exit. We are not beating the Sixers without him while giving them home court. Teams are significantly better then last year.

An extended injury to Kyrie also throws into question the idea of giving this superstar max money cause if you invest close to 200M in a player, a recurring knee problem can be a recipe for handcuffing your team. We need his injury issues to become a thing of the past but I am starting to wonder if that will ever be the case.

Cleveland friends warned me and said he gets injured yearly and some of the severe injuries will only get worse due to the surgeries he has had. They are rubbing it in my face once again and saying told you so.....Good luck with that max they tell me....

We need a healthy Kyrie to have any chance in the playoffs. We also need a healthy signed Kyrie to have any chance at a Davis trade in the offseason. Don't think for a second that Danny is not thinking about the ramifications of Kyrie's health prognosis going forward just like he thought of IT's issues. We all need to see Kyrie come back healthy and fast...if not, my thoughts on signing Kyrie will begin to change for the worse.

Any word yet on his injury?.

Speculations are that it's not just a knee sprain... If something popped because there was no knee on knee contact.. It could be worst and we could expect him to be out at least a week or two...
And with all the contenders coming up in our schedule.. Uuuuuggghh, this could get ugly as we may have to expect ourselves buried as the 5th seed with no chance of getting out of round one.

I wouldnít give Irving a max deal. The guy has been injured off and on his entire career going back to Duke. Yes the team canít win a title without a star player, but that doesnít mean you throw money at Irving. The Cís become the Utah Jazz if they lose Irving next year but that is ok. Better to be patient while trying to find a star rather than have a second overpaid player on your roster who cannot stay on the court and deliver. Bad big dollar contracts can kill teams long term. Let Irving go to the Knicks.

I've read that cardiologist Dr Gilbert H Mudge, who also dabbled as a orthopedic doctor in his pre-med days, said it's only a minor protrusion of the knee. Elevation and ice and 7-10 days off of it tops.

Blessing in disguise...for now. I hope he's not injured badly. I'm hoping that he feels well enough to lead this team into Philly and pull out a tough win. He has a week to rest. Wrap it up and show some toughness to the rest of the team.

Then say goodbye to Kyrie and AD.  Kyrie is a Max player and he is going to get paid.  Remember we got Horford because the Hawks screwed around negotiating with him and offered him a bit less than Max.

I no way, shape, or form would an extended injury absence of Kyrie be a good thing for the team. It might be better for Rozier, individually, but I'm not interested in what's best for any one player. The team would suffer, which is the only thing that matters.

Whatever problems exist need to be worked through, not brushed aside, in the hopes they'll go away on their own.

A week?  We play the Sixers on Tuesday.

He can rest during the AS break. I'd like to see him tough it out Tuesday and play. His team needs him to show leadership right now.

I still think we win Tuesday...

If his knee is injured, he should rest. He should not risk major injury to make a few wayward forum posters feel better. He played through knee pain in Cleveland and ended up breaking the kneecap. He played all of last season with knee pain before being shutdown.

Its not about "toughness" its about common sense. Pain means something is wrong.
