Celtics announce Kyrie Irving has suffered minor facial fracture. He's doubtful to play tomorrow vs. Raptors.

Sounds like Al Horford continues to progress well from his concussion symptoms. He's been upgraded to probable for tomorrow's game vs. Raptors, according to the team.

Not having Kyrie for tomorrow will be some tough sledding.

I'm a bit concerned about how much of a hinderance a face mask protector will be for Kyrie's "court vision" and deft ball handling when he returns. I remember that several players who had to wear them were frustrated by them and couldn't wait to liberate themselves from the "Iron Masks", albeit they were necessary for the players' safety. Then again, after breaking his nose for a 2nd time, Richard Hamilton was advised to wear a face mask to prevent needing significant nasal reconstructive surgery. He got used to his and wore one (had to) for the rest of his playing days. Hopefully, Kyrie will be able to adjust to his.

Here's a link to some old tweets commenting on Baynes being held out of the Spurs' practices to ensure the safety and well-being of his teammates.

Also, Brad Stevens said Kyrie Irving has NOT been diagnosed with a concussion. Team hopeful his return will be sooner rather than later.

MY NOTE:  Horford's concussion symptoms didn't start until the day or two after the contact.

Brad Stevens: "Kyrie’s not going to play. He’s not here. He visited a face specialist today and I think maybe fitted for a mask. … He hasn’t been diagnosed with a concussion. … We’re hopeful to have him back sooner rather than later."

Kyrie Irving is on the team trip to Brooklyn. #Celtics list him as questionable for tomorrow night's game vs. Nets. (Generally, players don't travel unless there is a very good chance they play on trip - which, in this case, is only one game).

MY NOTE:  He had previously been listed as 'Doubtful', so this is an upgrade.

After the Brooklyn game the question will be "Who was that masked man?"

Irving scored what was at the time his career high, 41 points.
