The Boston Celtics have won 10 games in a row, but they will have to go for No. 11 without the services of Kyrie Irving.

During the first quarter against the Charlotte Hornets, the Celtics star point guard took a wayward elbow from center Aron Baynes and went down in a heap.

Baynes’ blow caused Irving to stay on the floor for a few minutes before being taken to the locker room while bleeding heavily from the nose/mouth.
