The Boston Celtics‘ luck has just run dry. News has emerged that Kyrie Irving will miss the rest of the NBA season and the playoffs due to a procedure he’ll undergo this weekend. The surgery will remove two screws placed in his patella from his injury in the 2015 NBA Finals during his time with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Uncle Drew is expected to make a full recovery within 4-5 months after the surgery.

Take a look at the Celtics’ announcement and Kyrie’s message to his fans below.

The hardest thing to do sometimes is accept the uncontrollable things life throws at you. You try consistently to learn, grow, and prepare everyday to equip your mind, body, and spirit with tools to deal with some of those things, but I feel when those moments arise they all give you a sense of unfulfillment, simply because it puts some of your professional journey and goals on a brief hold. It’s simply a test of your perseverance and Will, to be present, even in the wake of what’s going on. In this case, finding out I have an infection in my knee is definitely a moment that I now accept and move past without holding on to the all the what ifs, proving the nay-Sayers completely f***ing wrong, and accomplishing the goals I’ve set out for the team and myself. This season was only a snapshot of what’s to come from me. Trust Me. “The journey back to the top of Mt. Everest continues.” #StandingRockSiouxTribe Let’s go Celtics!! Celtics fans, I look forward to hearing how loud it gets in the TD Garden during the playoffs and experiencing how intense the environment gets. Thank you all!
