G - BKN - OUT
The Brooklyn Nets are not expected to offer an extension to Kyrie Irving.
The drama continues between the Nets and Irving, who won't be permitted to play or practice for the team until he is able to be a full-time member of the team. This will be a storyline to continue to monitor with the season starting up next week.
Kyrie Irving remains unavailable to play for the Brooklyn Nets as an unvaccinated player. GM Sean Marks in a press release stated that no players will be permitted to play on a part-time basis.
Irving reportedly is not an anti-vaxxer, but that he disagrees with vaccine mandates that affect the employment of others. As of now, it's extremely risky to draft him without any idea of how things will pan out.
Kyrie Irving was ruled out ahead ahead of the Nets game Saturday against Milwaukee.
Brooklyn will be without Irving in a win-or-go-home game against the Bucks. They'll be relying heavily on Kevin Durant and James Harden.
The Brooklyn Nets are reportedly preparing to be without Kyrie Irving for the remainder of their current series against Milwaukee.
This is a significant loss for the Nets, but they are hopeful that James Harden (hamstring) will return for game five on Tuesday barring any setbacks in pregame warmups.
Kyrie Irving is set to miss Game 5 against the Milwaukee Bucks after injuring his ankle in Game 4 of the series. Head coach Steve Nash has said he has "no idea" if Irving will return this series.
It's a huge loss for Brooklyn, who will suddenly be relying on the likes of G Bruce Brown and F Jeff Green a lot more while Irving is out. Brown is the preferred option in DFS lineups, but neither are locks at this point.
