The Celtics encouraged Kyrie to play if he felt healthy, despite the fact that he sat out six of their previous 11 games before the break. That suggests that his recent left hip and right knee injuries are behind him, so we'd expect him to be fine for Boston's games on Feb. 21 (at Milwaukee) and Feb. 23 (at Chicago). Boston will also have Terry Rozier (illness) back in action after the break, so Gordon Hayward should return to the bench and there's no need to own Brad Wanamaker even in deep leagues.

<![CDATA[Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) said he's healthy and will]]> Kyrie Irving (right knee strain) said he's healthy and will play in the All-Star Game on Sunday night.

Irving missed the Celtics final two games heading into the All-Star break due to the knee issue, but speaking with reporters late in the week, Danny Ainge said that Irving was "very, very close" to a return. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks on Sunday or during practice next week, Kyrie will be ready to rock for the C's first game after the break, which is Thursday in Milwaukee.

Irving has traveled down to Charlotte for All-Star weekend with the Celtics physical therapist Brian Dolan and his personal trainer, Robin Pound. Kyrie's status for the All-Star game on Sunday night has not yet been determined, but Ainge said he would not have an issue with Irving playing even though he sat out of the Celtics last two contests. "I don’t know what he’s going to do, but I think Kyrie is very, very close (to a return)," Ainge said. "Honestly, I don’t really have any preference at all for what he does. I understand how he could actually benefit from having a really good workout."

Irving will miss the final two games heading into the All-Star break, and he could be sidelined during the All-Star game, but we'd expect him to be good to go for their first game after the break on Feb. 21 in Milwaukee. If Rozier is forced to join him on the sidelines tonight, we'd expect Marcus Smart to slide over to the point guard spot with Jaylen Brown moving into the starting unit. Stay tuned.

This is good news for Irving and Celtics, as he's not expected to miss significant time with the knee injury. The Celtics have two games left before the All-Star break, so it wouldn't be surprising if he is kept out of those games. Terry Rozier will likely continue to start and see a much larger role for the duration of Irving's absence.

<![CDATA[Getting MRI on knee]]> Irving is slated to undergo an MRI on his right knee after exiting Saturday's 123-112 loss to the Clippers with an injury, Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston reports.

The Celtics are currently labeling Irving's knee issue as a sprain, but the MRI should provide clarity regarding the grade of the injury, after which a timeline for his return will be established. Given that coach Brad Stevens noted after the game that Irving's knee "buckled," it wouldn't be surprising if the point guard wasn't able to play in the Celtics' next contest Tuesday in Philadelphia. Terry Rozier's stock would be on the rise if Irving is forced to miss any length of time.
