With Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving unavailable for this 12 months's National Basketball Association playoffs attributable to a left knee damage, the remainder of the group will attempt to fill the star level guard's footwear.

"The hardest thing to do sometimes is accept the uncontrollable things life throws at you", he wrote in an Instagram post.

The Celtics are comfortably No. 2 out east behind Toronto, but their road to through the playoffs without Irving will be rockier.

Terry Rozier, who will remain the team's starting point guard in Irving's absence, summed up the sentiment of a somber Celtics locker room.

Irving believes his best basketball is ahead of him. "It's simply a test of your perseverance and will, to be present, even in the wake of what's going on".

For instance, if Philadelphia does end up finding a way to earn that No. 3 seed over over Cleveland, the chances of them meeting Boston in the second round seem likely, assuming they find a way to escape the first round. He pointed to recent wins against teams like the Thunder, Trail Blazers and Raptors as proof of how high the Celtics' level of focus is right now and says he doesn't expect that to change. They had been implanted after Irving's patellar fracture through the 2015 NBA Finals. "My guess would be [the infection] was in there before and that's how they found it".

Irving has surgical procedure scheduled for Saturday and is anticipated to make a full restoration in 4 to 5 months, Fox 25 Boston reported. He gelled in quickly with his new teammates and put up a decent average of 24.4 points per game, until his season was put to a halt after a knee surgery due to an infection. Boston's first-round playoff opponent will doubtless be Miami, Milwaukee or Washington.

Al Horford evidently has no problem with his team being doubted.
