Kyrie Irving listed day-to-day by NBA Celtics with knee strain

L.A. Clippers Waive Marcin Gortat

Adding insult to injury - or maybe injury to insult - the Celtics lost Kyrie Irving to a right knee sprain in the second quarter, and the All-Star point guard did not return.

Because it's just been that type of week in what has been a wildly perplexing season thus far for a team that was expected by many to roll into the NBA Finals this June.

The Celtics were in control of the game when Irving hurt his knee with about five minutes left in the second quarter while attempting to defend Garrett Temple at the top of the key.

Irving is averaging 23.8 points, 7.0 assists and 4.9 rebounds for the Celtics, who are battling Philadelphia for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. "Those things happen and we all have to pick up for that".

"For us to be a championship team, this (stuff) has to change", Morris said.

"I mean, for me, it's not really about the loss", Morris said.

Morris' declaration following the Celtics' defeat at the hands of the Clippers Saturday night helped punctuate what appears to be a dysfunctional C's roster. You got guys hanging their heads. We're not competing at a high level. Even though we're winning, it's not fun. "I don't see the joy in the game".

Irving, who helped Cleveland win the 2016 National Basketball Association title before being traded to Boston in 2017, helped the United States group of National Basketball Association stars to 2016 Rio Olympic gold. "Right now, we just need to be more consistent in that regard". Whatever that takes, I'm with it.

It started with all the trade deadline rumors about Anthony Davis and how the Celtics would like to try to work out a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans in the offseason. "It's unacceptable what we did tonight for a team of our caliber". "I look at all these other teams and guys are moving the ball, guys are helping each other out on defence... when I look at this team I don't see that".
