Kyrie Irving out, Terry Rozier doubtful against Detroit

With the All-Star break right around the corner, it looks like Kyrie Irving will get an extended rest. Irving suffered a knee sprain in the second quarter of Saturday's loss to the Clippers, which caused him to miss last night's win in Philadelphia:

The Celtics All-Star guard, who should miss the All-Star game, won't be expected to return to action until February 21st when the Celts travel to Milwaukee to take on the East leading Bucks.

If Rozier can't play, Coach Brad Stevens will rely on Marcus Smart, Gordon Hayward and the rarely used Brad Wanamaker to take over ball-handling duties.

The 29-year-old Wanamaker is averaging 3.6 points in his 26 appearances this season.
