2019 Fantasy Outlook
Irving was selected to his second All-NBA team in 2018-19, which was his second season with the Celtics. The narrative surrounding Irving's campaign often didn't focus on his play, as there were well-documented chemistry issues in Boston's locker room. But Irving performed as well as he ever has on the court, averaging 23.8 points and career highs in assists (6.9) and rebounds (5.0) while tying a career high in steals (1.5). As a free agent over the summer, Irving opted to join forces with Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan in Brooklyn, though Durant isn't expected to play until 2020-21 due to a torn Achilles suffered in the 2019 NBA Finals. With the Nets, Irving figures to continue being the main driver of the offense, and he's finished top-10 in usage rate during three of his eight seasons. However, Irving's fantasy stock takes a hit in general due to his problems staying healthy. He's averaging just 63.5 appearances per year, and he's only reached the 70-game mark once across the past four seasons. Still, he's an All-NBA-level talent and is unlikely to be on the board once the third round hits in most fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Kyrie Andrew Irving was born in 1992 in Melbourne, Australia. His father, Drederick, was playing professional ball in Australia for the Bulleen Boomers when Kyrie was born. Before the Boomers, Drederick played college ball for Boston University, where they retired his jersey. Kyrie holds dual citizenship in both Australia and the United States. His godfather is former NBA player Rod Strickland. Irving his high school ball in New Jersey, starting with two seasons at Montclair Kimberley Academy before transferring to St. Patrick High School. After his senior season at St. Patrick, Irving was named a McDonald's All-American and a First Team All-American by Parade Magazine and USA Today. During his pro career, Irving took on the role of "Uncle Drew" for soda advertisements and an eventual movie that was filled with NBA stars. His favorite book is "Catcher in the Rye." Fans can follow the exciting point guard on both Twitter and Instagram @KyrieIrving.

College/International Summary

Irving's time at Duke was brief and glorious. He appeared in 11 games during his lone season as a Blue Devil, but averaged 17.5 points on 53.2 percent from the field and 5.4 assists for the 2010-11 squad. After eight games, the point guard injured his big toe in a Dec. 4 game against Butler. A game before getting injured, he had put the nation on notice with a season-high 31 points, six rebounds and four assists in a win over Michigan State. The New Jersey native had helped the Blue Devils go undefeated in the early season, but missed more than three months of the season due to the injury. He returned prior to the NCAA tournament and came off the bench in relief of Seth Curry. The 6-1 guard helped Duke survive with first weekend in wins over Hampton (14 points) and Michigan (11 points). Irving delivered 28 points in Duke's Sweet 16 loss to the Derrick Williams-led Arizona Wildcats.

Uncertain to return in 2019-20

Shoulder
April 1, 2020
Nets general manager Sean Marks said Wednesday that Irving (shoulder) isn't a safe bet to return to the court even if the suspended NBA season is resumed later in summer, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
ANALYSIS
Irving was ruled out for the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery March 3, but the NBA's decision to suspend operations indefinitely less than two weeks later may keep the door open for the star point guard to suit up again in 2019-20. Even so, the Nets likely won't have a good gauge of where Irving stands in his recovery for several weeks, as the team won't be able to hold regular meetings or practices to check in on him. Expect a clearer update on Irving's situation to arrive once the NBA gives teams the green light to reconvene for workouts.

Past Season Summaries
2018

In what would end up being Irving's second and final season in Boston, Kyrie was his typical productive self. He averaged over 20 points per game (23.8) for the sixth time in his eight-year career. But his biggest improvement came in terms of assists. Irving set a new career high with 6.9 dimes per game. Irving dished out a season-high 18 assists in a home win over the Raptors on Jan. 16. He also averaged seven helpers per game over the course of Boston's nine-game postseason run. By comparison, Irving averaged just 5.1 assists in 2017-18 with Boston. Uncle Drew also averaged 1.5 steals per game, matching a career high. The star point guard shot 87.3 percent from the charity stripe. Irving has never shot less than 85.5 percent from the line in any single season since his 2011-12 debut. Kyrie was rewarded for his stellar campaign with a spot on his sixth All-Star team. He was also named to All-NBA Second Team for the first time. It's been a remarkable run for a player who is still just 27 years old.

2017

The 2017-18 season marked Irving's first season outside of Cleveland following a summer trade that shipped him to Boston. Irving helped guide the Celtics to a second-place finish in the Eastern Conference, but his season ended early after a knee injury. In 60 games, Irving averaged 24.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 1.1 steals. He shot a career-best .491 from the field, while taking a career-high 6.8 three-point shots per game. In his return to Cleveland for the season opener, Irving notched a double-double with 20 points and 11 assists. He'd count at least 20 points in 11 consecutive contests in December beginning with 33 versus Denver and culminating with 28 in a 108-105 win against Brooklyn. Irving dropped 47 in a victory over Dallas on Nov. 20. He'd reach the 40-point plateau one more time, and that came against Orlando on January. The Duke star also scored 37 against Golden State on Jan. 27. Irving was also named to his fifth All-Star Game, where he started for the third time.

2016

The 2016-17 season represented Kryie Irving's sixth season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 24-year-old veteran played in 72 regular season and 18 playoff games for Cleveland. With teammate LeBron James by his side, Irving and the Cavs made it to their third straight NBA Finals. Irving demonstrated improved shooting accuracy in 2016-17. He shot a career-high 47.3 percent from the field and a career-high 90.5 percent from the charity stripe. His free throw accuracy ended up third-best in the NBA. A healthy Irving also hit 40.1 percent of this three-point attempts, a big improvement over the 32.1 percent he shot from behind the arc the previous season. That improved marksmanship led to a career-high 2.5 made three-pointers per game. In February, Irving returned to the All-Star Game as a starter, his fourth appearance in six seasons. He'd drop at least 20 points in a career-best 60 games, including four games with 40 or more points. The guard drilled four or more three-pointers 18 times. Irving tallied a career-high eight double-doubles, including three straight from Dec. 21 to 25. On Mar. 22, Irving recorded his 8,000th career point and made his 700th career triple at Denver, joining LeBron James and Mark Price as the only players in franchise history with 8,000 points and 700 treys. Unlike the year before, Irving was healthy throughout the postseason and averaged an impressive 25.9 points, 5.3 dimes, 1.3 steals while hitting 2.4 three-pointers per contest. In their third straight Finals matchup with Golden State, the Cavs lost in six games to the Warriors.

2015

Kyrie Irving's championship-winning, Game 7 three-point jump shot from the 2015 Finals will forever be part of NBA folklore. Irving would miss the first 24 games of the season while recovering from surgery to repair a fractured kneecap. In his first 20 contests back, he averaged 15.4 points and 3.8 assists while shooting 42.6 percent from the field. The dynamic guard eventually hit his stride, posting averages of 21.6 points and 5.2 assists over the season's final 33 matchups. During that same span, Irving converted 46 percent of his field goals and 35 percent of his three-point attempts, helping the Cavaliers secure the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. On Feb. 10, Irving scored a season-high 35 points to go with seven assists in a win over the Lakers. On Apr. 11, he matched that point total and chipped in with four assists and two steals during a win against the Hawks. In the postseason, Irving looked spectacular by shooting nearly 48 percent from the floor and knocking down 44 percent of his treys. While he was relatively quiet in Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals versus Golden State, Irving put up 30.8 points, 4.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals over the remaining five games. His best Finals' effort happened during the Game 5 win at Golden State. The Cavs were down 1-3 and facing elimination, but Irving generated 41 points and six assists, which led the Cavs to victory and sent the series back to Cleveland.

2014

Kyrie Irving returned to a dramatically different Cavalier squad for the 2014-15 season. Namely, LeBron James came back home to Cleveland. As one might expect, having a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer by his side improved Irving's scoring efficiencies. His field goal percentage increased from 43 percent last year to 47 percent in 2014-15 and his three-point accuracy improved from 36 to 42 percent. Better shooting led to better scoring, as Irving would average 21.7 points per game. Irving also stayed healthy and appeared in a career-high 75 games. On Nov. 29, Irving matched a career-high with 10 rebounds and added 24 points during a win over Indiana. On Jan. 28, the star guard delivered a career-high 55 points - including 11 treys - during a home win over Portland. In an OT win over the Spurs on Mar. 12, he went off for a new career-high 57 points that also included four steals and 7-for-7 accuracy from behind the arc. The combination of Kyrie and Lebron proved too difficult for the East, as Cleveland finished with a record of 53-29 and made it to the NBA Finals. Irving was forced to deal with a difficult postseason injury, as tendinitis in his left knee would hobble him for the Eastern Conference Finals and force him to miss two series games. He then played 43 minutes and scored 23 points during Game 1 versus Golden State, but aggravated the knee injury during overtime. As a result, he was forced to miss the rest of the Finals, which Cleveland lost to the Warriors in six games.

2013

The 2013-14 season was Kyrie Irving's third year in the Association. He played in a career-high 71 games - all starts - and reduced his turnovers from 3.2 per game the previous year to 2.7. Irving also averaged 20.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.5 steals in 35 minutes per contest. On Nov. 16, Irving matched a career-high with 41 points while adding five assists in a win at Washington. In early January, a knee issue forced Irving to miss three games. The next month, Irving was voted a starter in the 2014 NBA All-Star Game - his second overall appearance - and became the second-youngest player to ever earn MVP honors of this event (behind LeBron James) after tallying a team-high 31 points. He celebrated his first career triple-double on Feb. 28 in a win over Utah. In that contest, Irving produced 21 points, 10 rebounds - a career-best - and 10 assists. On Mar. 3, Irving came close to another triple-double with 30 points, eight rebounds and eight assists during a loss to the Knicks. A left bicep injury during a Mar. 16 encounter versus the Clippers almost cost Irving the rest of the season. He'd go on to miss eight games, but returned for Cleveland's seven last contests - including a personal-best 44 points at home against Charlotte. Cleveland would finish with a record of 33-49 and miss the postseason.

2012

Kyrie Irving played in 59 games - all starts - during his NBA-sophomore season as a member of the Cavaliers. He averaged 22.5 points, 5.9 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.8 made three-pointers per game. He scored 29 points on Opening Night and added six rebounds and six assists to beat Washington. Irving started Cleveland's first ten games and posted stellar stats, but then suffered a fractured left index finger during a loss at Philadelphia. This issue forced Irving to miss the next 11 games. He returned on Dec. 11 to light up the Lakers for 28 points, 11 assists, six rebounds and four three-pointers. Four games later, Irving posted a career-high 41 points during a close road loss to the Knicks. On Jan. 22, he would generate 40 points, five assists and two steals in a win over Boston. During the season, Irving would score 30 or more points 13 times. His 22.5 points per game marked the highest for any player 22 or younger in 2012-13 and the most among all Eastern Conference point guards. Irving became only the fifth player in NBA history to register three straight 30-point efforts before their 21st birthday - joining John Drew, Bernard King, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Irving won the 2013 Three-Point Contest at All-Star Weekend, and became only the second Cav - along with Mark Price in 1993 and 1994 - to take the event. Irving was also selected to the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, becoming the 16th All-Star in Cavaliers' history and one of only seven NBA players to make it before turning 21. Later in the month, a sore right knee forced Irving to miss three games. A Mar. 10 shoulder contusion forced Irving out of nine contests, but he'd return for the final nine games. The Cavs finished with a record of 33-49 and missed the playoffs.

2011

Kyrie Irving played in 51 games - all starts - during his rookie season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The No. 1 overall pick averaged 18.5 points on .469 shooting, 3.7 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.1 steals over 31 minutes per game. He also shot 40 percent from three-point range and 87 percent from the free throw line. Among rookies, Irving ranked first in points per game and free throw percentage, and second in three-point percentage and assists per game. League-wide, Irving ranked second in "points per fourth quarter inside the final three minutes of games" at 3.2 per contest. His rookie season stats put him in strong company, joining Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, Allen Iverson and LeBron James as the only first overall draft picks to average 18.0 points and 5.0 assists per game during their freshman campaign. By finishing the season with at least 18.0 PPG and shooting .399 percent from 3-point range, Irving matched Larry Bird as the only NBA rookies to accomplish this feat. Irving's NBA debut was delayed until Dec. 26 due to the NBA lockout. In February, concerns over a concussion forced him to miss three games. A sprained shoulder then sidelined Irving for ten contest over March and April. The Cavs would finish the season at 21-45 and miss the postseason.

Last season, Irving was cruising through an MVP-caliber campaign before being struck down in March with a left knee issue that led to an early end to his season. While Terry Rozier performed admirably during Irving’s absence, it was clear the Celtics needed Irving’s superstar talent and ability to create his own shot during crunch time. Now, the bigger question is this: Can Irving stay healthy? Irving has averaged 63 games per season over his seven year career. Knowing that Rozier deserves more minutes, Boston might be wise to periodically rest its star point guard in preparation for what will likely be another deep playoff run. On a more positive note, Irving shot a career high 49% percent from the field last season, and it seems relatively safe to assume Irving’s hot shooting will continue, given the amount of talent around him. The Celtics' depth across the board is borderline-historic, and while that could mean less of a workload for Irving, there's no question that Boston is at its best when the five-time All-Star is on the floor. The return of Gordon Hayward could result in Irving ceding some playmaking responsibilities, but the 26-year-old still managed the second-highest scoring average of his career last season, despite adjusting to a new system and playing nearly three fewer minutes per game, compared to his final year in Cleveland.
Wow, isn’t it hard to believe Irving is in Boston? Regardless of location, the starting point guard will still be asked to carry a heavy load with the Celtics. Remember, Isaiah Thomas took 19.4 shots per game last season, only a hair below Irving’s 19.7. Most of those shots will be redistributed to Irving, who will be free of LeBron James' control of the offense. And Irving delivers the same elite free-throw percentage as Thomas. One assumes it will take some time for Irving, fellow new Celtic Gordon Hayward, and center Al Horford to gel on offense. Coach Brad Stevens tends to run fewer isolation plays than Irving saw with Cleveland, so there will be an adjustment period for the two new stars to learn Boston’s passing schemes. But this new roster wasn’t put together to win in December. Expect continuous improvement through the season. And remember, there were many times last season when the Celtic offense crumbled, forcing Thomas to improvise. That’s a role Irving should relish. Expect Irving’s minutes to stay high, as the trade weakened Boston’s depth. And look for some very exciting revenge games between these two Eastern division rivals, beginning in Cleveland on Opening Night (Oct. 17).
After missing the first 24 games of the season while recovering from surgery to repair a fractured kneecap, Irving initially struggled to regain his All-Star form, averaging 16.4 points and 3.8 assists while shooting 42.6 percent from the field and just 25.3 percent from three-point range through his first 20 games back. However, the dynamic point guard eventually hit his stride, posting averages of 21.6 points and 5.2 assists over the season's final 33 games. In that same span, Irving converted 46 percent of his field goals and 35 percent of his three-point attempts, helping the Cavaliers secure the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Irving was spectacular in the postseason, shooting nearly 48 percent from the floor and knocking down 44 percent of his treys. While he was relatively quiet in Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals, Irving put up 30.8 points, 4.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game over the remaining five games, headlined by a 41-point, six-assist performance in a Game 5 victory that sent the series back to Cleveland. Additionally, Irving memorably knocked down the game-winning three-pointer over the Warriors' Stephen Curry late in Game 7, solidifying his place as one of the NBA's premier point guards. On the heels of strong showing with the United States team in the 2016 Summer Olympics, Irving will enter 2016-17 as a candidate to make the leap toward true superstar status. While it would be foolish to underestimate LeBron James, it's reasonable to think the reigning Finals MVP could coast during the regular season, which would open the door for Irving to take on even more of a lead role offensively. If he can continue to score efficiently and return to being a 40-percent three-point shooter, Irving should have no problem reclaiming his spot on the Eastern Conference All-Star team.
After three seasons of wallowing at the bottom of the Eastern Conference, Irving was able to enjoy a highly-successful season as LeBron James' wingman. The 6-3 guard played in a career-high 75 games and put up his best field goal percentage (47 percent) and three-point conversion rate (42 percent for 2.1 three-pointers per game) during the regular season with averages of 21.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks. Irving was unable to stay away from the injury bug in the playoffs, and his first postseason ended in the opening game of the Finals with a fractured left kneecap. He is not expected to be ready for the start of the 2015-16 season, and injuries continue to be a concern for the fifth-year guard. It may be that coach David Blatt will need to monitor Irving's minutes since he played 36 per game last season. With Mo Williams and Matthew Dellavedova coming off the bench, Irving may be best served to play closer to 30 minutes rather than 35, so the three-time All-Star can survive the season unscathed. He is just 23 years old, so he should be able to continue to put up excellent numbers across the board when he's healthy, but that may not be until January.
Kyrie Irving took a slight step back in his third year in the league in 2013-14, but the All-Star point guard steps into a new world this season with the addition of LeBron James to the squad. Irving played a career-high 71 games and averaged 35 minutes, quelling some of the durability concerns that had plagued him in his first two seasons. His averages of 20.8 points on 43 percent shooting from the field and 1.7 three-pointers on 36 percent shooting from long range were all down a tick from his second season. Irving also provided 3.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game. He hit 86 percent of his free throws. With James and Kevin Love on the team, Irving will need to adjust to not always being the focus of the offense and try to help his team in other ways beyond scoring. New coach David Blatt will try to install a Princeton-style offense that will encourage players to move without the ball, and Irving will need to adjust to his third coach in four years as well. There have also been concerns about Irving's lackadaisical perimeter defense, which will need to be shored up to help discourage opposing players from penetrating (since Cleveland does not have a great rim protector). On the plus side, playing with better teammates should allow Irving to take easier shots, so his shooting percentages may rise.
In his first two seasons in the NBA, Kyrie Irving has displayed almost every quality you'd want to see in a top point guard. He's one of the quickest guards in the league. He sees the floor well and has an excellent feel for the game. He shoots from distance well enough (39 percent) to keep opposing defenses honest, which makes him even tougher to guard off the dribble. And while he isn't a great defender at this stage of the game, he has improved on that end of the floor and should take another step forward with defense-minded head coach Mike Brown taking over the Cavs this year. The only real area of concern is Irving's inability to stay on the floor; a variety of nagging injuries limited him to 51 games played as a rookie and 59 games last year. The addition of veteran guard Jarrett Jack may help Irving this year; Mike Brown is expected to play Irving off the ball at times, with Jack running the offense. That could boost Irving's scoring a bit and reduce some of the strain associated with playing point guard full time.
The Cavaliers got an immediate return on their investment in Kyrie Irving, as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 draft looks like a real star--and future Olympian. Irving is lightning-quick, has outstanding handle and superior court vision for a player his age, which enabled him to post impressive averages of 18.5 points, 5.4 assists and shoot nearly 40 percent from three-point range. The fact that he dealt with several nagging injuries during the season makes those overall numbers even more impressive. Cleveland was involved in several potential Dwight Howard trades, but the only major addition they made this offseason is Dion Waiters (fourth overall pick), a poor man's Dwyane Wade type out of Syracuse. That means Irving--with Waiters and Tristan Thompson--will continue to be the focus of Cleveland's offense. Irving did suffer a hand injury while working out with Team USA's select team--the group of up-and-comers that scrimmages against Team USA before international competitions--but is expected to be completely healthy before training camp.
The future of the Cavaliers, Irving will make a huge impact in his rookie season. Irving’s electrifying speed, great court awareness and exceptional ball-handling ability will be on display from the get go. He will be one of the top contenders for the Rookie of the Year award as he will produce solid steal, assist and point totals.
