He will reportedly be out multiple games this week as he tries to rest and rehab heading into the home stretch of the National Basketball Association regular season.

Irving played just 16 minutes in the game against in, scoring seven points while adding four rebounds, one assist and one steal. He told reporters he isn't anxious about his balky knee considering that the Celtics have a solid grip on the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. "I think he got kneed, but I don't think that that is anything more than a knee to knee or knee to thigh right above his knee". "I just got to do that". If Irving is out, Rozier could be in line for a big game against Washington on Wednesday. He did return, however, to play in Boston's Thursday-night victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Boston coach Brad Stevens said the team didn't have any official diagnosis with more detail other than Irving's knee being sore.

"I don't think it's anything serious, but we want Kyrie healthy and fresh", Ainge told the "Toucher and Rich" program.

Horford is averaging 31.9 FanDuel points per game this season.
