It looks like Boston Celtics fans may have to wait even longer to witness Kyrie Irving's return to TD Garden.
The ex-Celtics guard has been ruled out indefinitely after re-aggravating his injured right shoulder, Brooklyn Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said Tuesday. That likely puts Irving's status in doubt for the March 3 C's-Nets game in Boston.

Irving didn't travel to Boston when his Nets visited the Celtics on Nov. 27. The shoulder injury has limited him to only 20 games this season, but he's been effective when healthy, averaging 27.4 points and 6.4 assists per game.
