The shorthanded Celtics suffered another blow on Friday night when point guard Kyrie Irving was struck in the head less than two minutes into the game against the Hornets and was later ruled out for the night, as he was checked for a possible concussion.
With 10 minutes, 10 seconds left in the first quarter, Hornets guard Kemba Walker drove and lofted a running floater. Celtics center Aron Baynes attempted to block the shot, and when he landed he inadvertently struck Irving in the head with his right elbow.
Irving fell to the floor and appeared dazed as he bled considerably. He stayed down for a minute or two before being helped to the locker room, and he still looked wobbly then.
The Celtics later announced that Irving was being checked for a possible concussion and would not return to the game.
