Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving took an inadvertent elbow to the face from a teammate early in the first quarter of Friday night’s game against the Charlotte Hornets and is being monitored for a possible concussion.

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