Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has reportedly been ruled out for the duration of the regular season and the playoffs after undergoing knee surgery last month.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the news.

Irving underwent surgery on his left knee on March 24 to remove a tension wire that was causing discomfort.

The original prognosis predicted that Irving would miss between three and six weeks of action, meaning he would be in line to return in the later rounds of the playoffs.

Now, it appears, that will not be possible. The team still has young swingmen Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, plus veteran big men Al Horford, but losing Irving and Hayward on the perimeter will make them a far easier out come playoff time. This wire had been placed into his knee during the procedure to fix a fractured patella - injury which he suffered during the 2015 NBA Finals.

Irving finishes the season with 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds averaged in 60 games played.

If the Eastern Conference table was to remain as it is right now the Celtics would face the Washington Wizards in the first round with a potential semi-final series against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
