Kyrie Irving might have to undergo season-ending surgery as he looks to address a lingering issue with his sore left knee.

Irving has missed Boston's last four games and could be ruled out for the season.

After a pair of free throws by reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Russell Westbrook, the Thunder held a 98-92 lead over the super-short-handed Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston. After a driving layup by rookie Jayson Tatum to cut the deficit to four, the Celtics quickly fouled, putting Westbrook on the line for two free throws.

Kyrie Irving has missed the last three Celtics games — two of them losses — due to a sore knee.

Now comes a report that just time off has not yet had the desired effect on Irving’s knee, so he will seek a second opinion, Shams Charania of The Vertical at Yahoo Sports broke the story and Brad Stevens of the Celtics confirmed it (with some more details by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports).
