Kyrie Irving Ready For Celtics Camp After “Long F*cking Two Months”

After "a long, long fucking two months," Boston Celtics' All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving says his left knee infection is behind him and he expects to be fully ready for training camp.

Speaking at the USA Basketball men's national team practice on Thursday in Las Vegas, Irving revealed some details about the knee injury which required season-ending surgery in April to remove two screws from his left patella, after the Celtics revealed a bacterial infection was discovered at the site of the screws.

Irving, 26, explained that the infection discovered on the metal wiring and screws in his knee could have evolved into a staph infection had it not been caught and treated early enough. In order to combat the infection, a catheter was inserted into a vein going into his heart, according to ESPN.

ESPN reports that Kyrie went through one-on-one drills with his trainer Thursday, but was in street clothes when he attended the USA Basketball men's national team practice. He says he will "easily" be ready for the start of Celtics training camp.
