After dealing with knee issues at the end of last season, Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving is ready to get back on the court.
Life hasn’t been so easy for Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving. He had a great start to the season, but his season ended early when he underwent surgery on his left knee. Now things seem to be headed in the right direction.
Irving is currently out in Las Vegas for team USA. Irving isn’t practicing with the team but is working on individual drills and expects to be ready for Celtics training camp.
That will definitely get Celtics fans excited. The C’s were without their two biggest stars in the postseason. Imagine what they can do when they have a healthy squad.

Irving had to get surgery because he had a bacterial infection in his knee. That doesn’t sound fun and it seems like Irving was lucky they caught the infection out early.
“It could have evolved to staph, but good thing we caught it early. I am glad that is done. That was a long, long f—ing two months.”
Irving will be the driving force of the Boston Celtics offense next season. In 60 games, he averaged 24.4 points and 5.1 assists per game.
The Celtics have one of the deepest rosters in the league. Some teams wish that the Celtics 2nd unit was their starting lineup.
