Kyrie Irving leaves Friday's game with possible concussion

Kyrie Irving leaves Friday's game with possible concussion”

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving was forced to leave Friday's home game against the Charlotte Hornets at TD Garden after being struck by an accidental high elbow from teammate Aron Baynes.

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.

The blow forced Irving to the floor, where his head began bleeding nearly immediately.

The team announced Wednesday morning that Horford was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol and would be out indefinitely. Center Al Horford missed Friday's game with a concussion and Gordon Hayward was lost for the season in the first quarter of the season's first game.

Horford caught an elbow to the head during Monday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks, as forward Kent Bazemore came down with his elbow after trying to block the big man from behind. The Celtics have been +15.5 points per 100 possessions better than their opponents when Irving and Horford - who have developed some real chemistry - are on the court together.
