The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Bos­ton point guard Kyrie Irv­ing said he plannned to play Tues­day night at Brook­lyn after miss­ing a game with a mi­nor fa­cial frac­ture.

Irv­ing was hit in the face by team­mate Aron Baynes on Fri­day early in a vic­tory over Char­lotte. He sat out Sun­day when the Celtics beat Toronto for their 12th straight vic­tory.

Irv­ing will wear a mask on the court and says he may need to play in it for a cou­ple of weeks. He has had to wear a mask be­fore to pro­tect in­juries, and says he doesn’t like it but un­der­stands it is nec­es­sary for his safety.
