It was thought the procedure would alleviate some of the pain temporarily, and Irving would return at some point in the playoffs.
After the surgery, GM Danny Ainge stated that the star's knee was structurally sound.
From the moment Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge sent the last vestiges of Kevin Garnett's and Paul Pierce's careers to the Brooklyn Nets for the rights to four first-round draft picks five years ago, it has felt as if everything Ainge has touched has turned to gold. Fans had to say goodbye to last postseason's hero in Isaiah Thomas, though the fact he helped the C's land Irving made that a brief mourning period.
"The most challenging thing to do from time to time will be accept the uncontrollable things life yells", he wrote within an Insta-gram post.
"It's simply a test of your perseverance and Will, to be present, even in the wake of what's going on".

"I wish him the best". That's just the first of many ripple effects of Irving's latest surgery - ripple effects that will last until next summer, and potentially far beyond that. Boston will likely enter the playoffs as the No. 2 seed behind Toronto.
The wire had been placed in his knee during the same surgery in which the screws were inserted in 2015.
Boston has been down on it's luck since the first game of the season when their big free agent splash, Gordan Hayward, fractured his ankle on opening night for the whole world to see.
What's clear is that the EC gets less interesting unless the 76ers can figure out a way to challenge, maybe take someone to 7 games.
The Boston Celtics will be without Kyrie Irving for the remainder of the regular season and the entire playoffs.
