Celtics say Kyrie Irving suffered minor facial fracture against Hornets

6:02 PM ET

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving suffered a minor facial fracture in Friday’s win over the Charlotte Hornets and is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Toronto Raptors.

Al Horford (concussion) has been upgraded to probable against Toronto after missing the past two games while navigating the league’s concussion protocol.

Celtics big man Aron Baynes hit Irving while trying to defend a Kemba Walker shot attempt in the first quarter of Friday’s game. After fouling Walker on a drive, Baynes spun to box out, and his right elbow smashed Irving, who collapsed to the floor clutching his face.

Irving was attended to by Celtics trainer Art Horne and left the court clutching a towel over his bloodied face. He was monitored for a potential concussion.

Boston was already playing without Gordon Hayward (ankle) and Horford. Including Irving, that’s $76.2 million
