Kyrie Irving led the way for the Celtics Saturday in Atlanta, scoring 32 points (11-of-19 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs) with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
After lighting up the Grizzlies for 38 points Friday, Irving passed the 30-point mark for the second consecutive night. The last time he tallied 30 or more in back-to-back games was in early November against the Nuggets and Suns. Over his last four games Irving, who scored 23 points in the first half Saturday night, boasts shooting splits of 57.3/48.0/82.8 and he’s scored 25 points or more in each outing. Also, he may be without a backcourt partner in the coming games as Marcus Smart was ejected in the third quarter following an altercation with DeAndre’ Bembry. Jan 19 - 10:17 PM

Kyrie Irving dominated during a 122-116 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring 38 points with seven rebounds, 11 assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

He exploded in the third quarter with 20 points and is playing some of his best ball of his career. After the last game, Irving had a career-high 18 dimes and mentioned it after the game. "Somehow people still think I can't pass," he said. His recent output in passing makes him the first Celtics player to record 27+ points and 11+ assists in consecutive games since Larry Bird (Feb. 13-14, 1986). He'll have some risk rest late in the year, but Irving is among the best fantasy point guards when active.

Kyrie Irving admitted after Wednesday's win over the Raptors that he recently called LeBron James to apologize for failing to accept his leadership while they were in Cleveland.

"I had to call Bron and tell him, I apologized for being that young player that wanted everything at his fingertips, and I wanted everything at my threshold," Irving said. "I wanted to be the guy that led us to a championship. I wanted to be the leader. I wanted to be all that." Irving acknowledged that it's been tough for him stepping into a leadership role with the Celtics and that he now appreciates how James tried to teach him championship tendencies.

Kyrie Irving (quad) is good to go for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Irving didn't play on Monday with a minor quad issue, but he'll be back in action tonight for a matchup against the No. 1 team out East. With Irving back in the lineup, Terry Rozier will return to the second unit, and his value will take a fairly large hit.
Jan 16 - 1:12 PM

Kyrie Irving (quad) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Irving skipped Monday's game due to the quad issue, but it's looking like it'll only be a one-game absence, which would translate to Terry Rozier returning to the second unit. Check back for official confirmation on his status following Wednesday's shootaround.
Jan 15 - 4:43 PM

Kyrie Irving (right quad contusion) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

He popped up on the injury report on Sunday with a questionable tag, so the Celtics will play it safe tonight. Luckily for the Celtics and his fantasy owners, Irving intends to play on Wednesday vs. the Raptors. Rozier will be an elite streaming option on a six-game slate given his track record as a starter, while Jaylen Brown will also benefit with Marcus Smart (illness) out.

Kyrie Irving (right quad contusion) is questionable to play vs. the Nets on Monday.

It's unclear when Irving hurt his thigh and we may not know more until after Boston's shootaround. If he is limited or ruled out, Terry Rozier's stock will spike and he'll be a popular streaming and DFS option. For now, Kyrie's owners should simply keep an eye on the injury report.

Kyrie Irving was very descriptive in talking about his team and their recent struggles after Saturday's loss in Orlando.

"Experience. It’s the best thing I can say is experience," Irving said. "We’re lacking it and, because of that, we have a lot of learning to do. So we have a lot of ground to make up in that aspect. It gets tough. When it gets hard you’ve got to think. You’ve got to do the right things. You can’t gamble and think that it’s going to be the winning play. You’ve got to be able to play the full 48 minutes, no matter what’s going on, and hold your head high when you make mistakes. When your job is called upon, you’ve got to do it to the best of your ability. You’ve got to come in and make an impact for the minutes that you’re playing out there." The Celtics have lost two straight and five of their last six on the road. They were once thought to be the favorites in the Eastern Conference, but they've had some internal conflict over the last few games. They'll have another road test in their next game against the surprising Nets in Brooklyn.

Kyrie Irving's team-high 25 points were not enough during a 105-103 loss to the Magic on Saturday, adding five rebounds, six assists, one block, two steals and one turnover in 33 minutes

The Celtics had the ball down two with 2.7 seconds left and Kyrie in a groove, but surprisingly the play went to Jayson Tatum and he missed a Kobe-esque fadeaway. The Celtics managed to lose both games in their trip to Florida with a blowout loss in Miami on Thursday to move them to the No. 5 spot in the Eastern Conference. In strictly Kyrie news, he apparently caught wind that he wasn't going to the line with just one attempt this month prior to today because he was 11-of-13 from there today. He's having a terrific season and just needs to stay healthy.
Jan 12 - 9:45 PM

Kyrie Irving cooled off in the second half in a 115-99 loss to the Heat on Thursday, finishing with 22 points, five rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He had 17 points in the first half on 8-of-11 from the field, but Irving was just 2-of-8 in the second half. Irving also didn't go to the line today, which has been a trend with just one free throw attempt combined over the last three games. Perhaps he's being a little gun-shy after eye issues, but he'll get a very friendly matchup on Saturday against the Magic.
Jan 10 - 9:47 PM

Kyrie Irving (eye) returned from a two-game absence and scored 17 points in 28 minutes in a 116-95 win over the Nets on Monday.

The Celtics won by 21 points, allowing Irving to put his feet up in the fourth quarter. He was his usual productive self, hitting 8-of-16 shots with six assists, two rebounds, three steals and one triple. We haven't heard a peep about his knee all season as he continues to cruise with top-10 per-game value in standard leagues.
Jan 7 - 9:54 PM

Kyrie Irving (eyes), Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris and Al Horford will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Nets.

With Irving and Morris back in action, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier will return to the second unit, and both of their values will take a hit. Irving owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active for what should be an uptempo matchup with the Nets.

Kyrie Irving (left eye inflammation) is expected to play on Monday against the Nets after being removed from the injury report.

Irving has missed the past two games after having his eye scratched last Monday against the Spurs. Coach Brad Stevens said that Irving will return, but check back prior to tip-off to confirm. Terry Rozier will return to his usual role off the bench and can be cut in most leagues.
Jan 6 - 1:17 PM

Kyrie Irving (left eye inflammation) was able to go through a light workout on Friday.

He should be able to play in the near future according to coach Brad Stevens, but it's a pretty vague update. Terry Rozier will make his second straight start vs. the Mavericks on Friday and belongs in all lineups for as long as Irving is out. Just don't cut someone you will miss.
Jan 4 - 6:29 PM

Kyrie Irving (left eye inflammation) will not play vs. the Mavs on Friday.

Terry Rozier will be a very popular DFS option with Irving out again, and makes sense as a streaming play. The good news for Kyrie is that the injury isn't expected to keep him out very long, and the Celtics don't play again until next Monday.
