Korvpalliliigas NBA idakonverentsis teist kohta hoidev Boston Celtics peab hooaja lõpuni hakkama saama mängujuhi Kyrie Irvinguta.

Celtics andis teada, et Irving ei saa põlvevigastuse tõttu meeskonda aidata enam põhihooajal ega ka play-off'is, kirjutab ESPN.

Hiljuti põlveoperatsioonil käinud Irving peab laupäeval minema veel ühele protseduurile, mille käigus eemaldatakse tema põlvest kaks kruvi, mis paigaldati sinna 2015. aastal, kui ta tegi endale viga NBA finaalseerias.

Klubi teatel kulub Irvingul täielikuks paranemiseks neli kuni viis kuud.

Varasemalt Cleveland Cavaliersi ridades pallinud Irvingu arvele jäi esimesel Bostonis mängitud hooajal keskmiselt 24,4 punkti, 5,1 resultatiivset söötu ja 3,8 lauapalli.

Seotud lood:

The hardest thing to do sometimes is accept the uncontrollable things life throws at you. You try consistently to learn, grow, and prepare everyday to equip your mind, body, and spirit with tools to deal with some of those things, but I feel when those moments arise they all give you a sense of unfulfillment, simply because it puts some of your professional journey and goals on a brief hold. It's simply a test of your perseverance and Will, to be present, even in the wake of what's going on. In this case, finding out I have an infection in my knee is definitely a moment that I now accept and move past without holding on to the all the what ifs, proving the nay-Sayers completely f***ing wrong, and accomplishing the goals I've set out for the team and myself. This season was only a snapshot of what's to come from me. Trust Me. "The journey back to the top of Mt. Everest continues." #StandingRockSiouxTribe Let's go Celtics!! Celtics fans, I look forward to hearing how loud it gets in the TD Garden during the playoffs and experiencing how intense the environment gets. Thank you all!
