During the Boston Celtics’ 120-111 loss Monday to the San Antonio Spurs, Kyrie Irving suffered a scratched left cornea in the fourth quarter. He briefly left the game with 7:22 left to play, but he returned to the court with 4:37 remaining and scored two points as well as logging a steal.
“Kyrie has a scratched eye,” Coach Stevens said. “So he’ll have antibiotics for that. I don’t know what that means beyond tonight.”
Irving, meanwhile, addressed the media after the game wearing a pair of sunglasses. Irving said: “I’m wearing sunglasses, so not too good. I’ll be all right, though. [He] smacked the shit out of me. He just caught me pretty good.”
