Kyrie Irving #11 of the Boston Celtics stand for the National Anthem before the game against the Philadelphia 76ers on November 30, 2017 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving will get a second opinion on his balky left knee, according to Yahoo!

Irving first acknowledged soreness in his knee, the same one he had surgery on during the 2015 Finals while with the Cavaliers, after a loss in Houston earlier this month. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN added there's no structural damage and rest might be the best remedy.

Kyrie Irving is still out for the Boston Celtics after missing a fourth consecutive game due to a sore knee as he will now seek outside counsel.

"I'm not concerned. Where we are in the season, I'm pretty comfortable", Irving said.

"When we were playing our very best", Stevens said, "which, I think, was right after the All-Star break when we were playing really well, I thought we had a great balance between starters and bench". "It's not new pain, by any means".

The Celtics will keep Irving out as long as possible for the regular season without even thinking about it, but many will wonder if it is even worth it to try and bring him back for the playoffs.

"He's out because of knee soreness, not because we're choosing to rest him". That's the bottom line.

But asked if the team has discussed surgery options with the guard, who was previously thought to be suffering from tendinitis, the Celtics coach said, "I have not talked to him, and don't want to speak for others". That being said, if pushing any kind of surgery into the offseason might threaten anything with next season, this really does not feel worth it. "If he doesn't go on the trip - and we know he's going to be gone for four games - then we have to prepare for those four games".

"Obviously, we're fortunate in that we created cushion early on in the year as far as playoffs and everything else, but this is not one of those situations where we're choosing to rest somebody", Stevens said. That knee has been sore.
