Marcus Smart has been out with an injured thumb, but the team does hope he'll be able to come back during the playoffs.
Irving will undergo a second procedure this Saturday to remove the screws.
That's bad news for the Celtics, who've been short-handed since the season began.
However the 26-year-old Australian-born point guard has now been ruled out of the rest of the season, ESPN reported.
In a comical twist, ESPN's Kevin Pelton said the Celtics should be hoping they face off against the Bucks in the first round rather than the Wizards or Heat. But since the Celtics would have to get through the Cavaliers in the conference semi's in this case, the potential Conference Championship opponent would probably be the Cavaliers. Nowitzki could be the first to play that long with one franchise.
That luck would likely run out against the Raptors, assuming their postseason hiccups go extinct this summer. His left knee requires a second surgery in as many weeks, and this one is far more extensive than the last. Losing Irving probably ruins the Celtics' chances of winning the National Basketball Association title.
"Minor setback fam", Thomas commented in response to Irving's post, adding the hashtag "#ThatSLOWgrind". But, make no mistake - this postseason will still be fun.
This Celtics season is legit cursed. There was a real chance the Celtics could be squaring off against the Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets come June. Being slotted against the victor of a Kyrie-less Boston versus Wizards, Heat, or Bucks series in the conference semi's would be a much more favorable match-up than facing off against what would probably be the No. 1 seed Raptors. But whatever success Boston has in the playoffs will be overshadowed by wondering what could have been had the team played at full strength.
The issue, however, is that they could also lose to anyone. But the circumstances are just too great for the Celtics to overcome.
Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown will be forced to grow up at an even more rapid pace, and if we've learned anything from watching those two this year it's that they already own the ability to go toe-to-toe with the big boys of the league. Given that Boston's schedule has been a little more hard than typical with Irving out of the lineup, the sum total is a team 1.6 points per 100 possessions better than average, when adjusted for opponent and game location.
