Like I said I knew it wasnt serious. Tie them up and play. All this rest and caution is unnecessary. Ainge needs to find out how tough he is before he changes the entire franchise to build around him. This is a big game for the team and the guys need to see him step up and lead. All this babysitting...the old Celtics would laugh at these guys. I'm not talking about the 80s team, I'm talking about the 2008-12 team.

You realize we had a bunch of guys blow out their knees on those teams right? Leon Powe, Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo.

Paul Pierce with the MCL sprain, Ray Allen and his ankle injury. That was an All-NBA injury squad.

...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 might rather have Rozier than Irving.  It seems as though things gelled last year with Rozier at the helm.

Rozier is not half the player Kyrie is and doesn't have the intelligence on the court that Kyrie has. Also, he's not nearly as effective a shooter.

The East surprisingly enough is much better this season than last season. Last season's Celtic playoff team doesn't make it past the 2nd round (or maybe the 1st.) We need Kyrie for a deep playoff run.

We'd be a 1st round exit. Took us 7 games to beat Milwaukee in the first round last year. I think people are forgetting the actuality of last season's playoffs and thinking it was some dominant run. Save for the Philly series, we struggled on the road in the playoffs. (Interestingly enough, Rozier no-showed during road games, a trend which has continued this season).

I'm sure if you ask Kevin Garnett now, he'd manage his knee issue a bit differently.
