CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving will miss another game against Cleveland.
The Celtics said Irving is missing the game due to "load management."
Irving was traded to Boston in the summer of 2017 after asking for one.
He has not played a game in Cleveland since the Cavs faced the Celtics in the 2017 home opener.
