Kyrie Irving has surgery to fix shoulder impingement

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to fix an impingement in his right shoulder.

Irving was ruled out for the season in February due to the injury that previously sidelined him for 26 games earlier in the season.

The 27-year-old star is expected to make a full recovery.

Irving averaged 27.4 points and 6.4 assists over 20 games in his first season in Brooklyn.
