Kyrie Irving of Boston Celtics exits with knee sprain

  • The Clippers were the team that sent the NBA trade deadline dominoes falling

Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a strained right knee after an MRI in Boston, the team announced Sunday.

First, the Boston Celtics lost their point guard.

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving suffered a knee sprain in Saturday night's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Celtics were well in control of things, up until the point in which Kyrie Irving succumbed to an injury and was forced out of the game. He most notably underwent a procedure to remove screws from his left knee - which were originally implanted after suffering a patellar fracture in the 2015 NBA Finals - last March. He had the screws removed in April. The lone loss for the Celtics in the past seven games between the teams came in their last visit to the Wells Fargo Center in the 2018 playoffs. Even though we're winning, it's not fun.

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

Juventus make Ramsey the highest-paid British player in history
Ramsey will leave Arsenal on a free in the summer, though Juventus will have to pay €3.7million as a result of the registration. Ramsey will earn an eye-watering "basic" salary of £400k per week before tax in Turin, according to the BBC's David Ornstein.

Irving, 26, leads the team in scoring (23.6) and assists (6.9), but appears to be backtracking on his preseason commitment to re-sign with the Celtics (35-21) this summer, and hasn't easily transitioned into a leadership role. I just don't see the joy in the game. "And I just felt like one thing we're missing is enjoying the game, enjoying this process, and I just spoke on it".

Marcus Morris #13 of the Boston Celtics is introduced before the game against the Charlotte Hornets at TD Garden on January 30, 2019 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Morris started and scored 15 points and had six rebounds in the loss.

Especially early on in the season, we saw multiple players struggle. "And when I look at us, I just see a bunch of individuals". "We have to genuinely want to win". Whatever that takes, I'm with it. If you want to take me out of the lineup and get some juice in it, I'm with it. That is likely why the Los Angeles Lakers (or another suitor) were unable to make a deal with New Orleans before the trade deadline. This is what we're going with. So, at the end of the day, man... it's unacceptable what we did tonight.
