On Friday night Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving exited Boston's game against the Hornets in the first quarter after he caught a wicked (and accidental) elbow to the face from teammate Aron Baynes.

In addition to losing Hayward for the year, the Celts also had to put Al Horford on the shelf for the time being with a concussion. Now the team's monitoring Irving as he could be in the same boat as Horford:
Oh, and even without all those guys the Celtics won 90-87. That's like 11 in a row, or something.
