Kyrie Irving is clearly still hurting. Between his sprained right foot and his left knee tendinitis, Irving has been hobbling around since the playoffs began, basically. And in the Bulls series in particular, he looked like he was limping around at all times.
But despite missing several practices over the last few days, Kyrie says he “definitely” will play in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Atlanta Hawks.
From Dave McMenamin of ESPN:
Kyrie Irving says he'll definitely play Game 1 in Atlanta on Wednesday.
