Kyrie Irving gets hand checked during Celtics shootaround

It appears Kyrie Irving was getting his right hand or wrist checked during Friday morning shootaround, as the Celtics prepare for Game 3 against the Pacers.

Cameras also caught the All-Star guard on the bench during Game 2 Wednesday night getting the same hand and or wrist looked at. It may be nothing major, but it is worth keeping an eye on.

Irving didn't really let whatever the issue or non issue is affect his performance, as it was a non factor in the Celtics 99-91 comeback win over the Pacers to take a 2-0 series lead. The veteran point guard finished with 37 points (15-of-shooting, 6-of-10 from 3), 7 assists and 6 rebounds.

Game 3 is Friday night in Indianapolis, while Irving is averaging 28.5 points, 7 assists and 5.5 rebounds through the first two games in Boston.
