Celtics outlook changed dramatically
The loss of Kyrie Irving was sure to hurt the Boston Celtics, and Steve Kyler of basketballinsiders.com joins the Erik Kuselias Show to discuss the impact.
According to Kyler of Basketball Insiders, Irving’s injury makes it much less likely that Gordon Hayward will make a late season return from his opening night injury. The two biggest pieces Boston brought in over the offseason will likely not be with them again until next season.
As the NBA Playoffs approach, the Eastern Conference outlook has flipped quite a bit. Irving’s former team, the Cavaliers, are also discussed in the talk with the expert from Basketball Insiders.
