The Kyrie Irving saga continued Friday night.
The Nets star has been in the headlines of late, missing Brooklyn’s last five games while being seen on video maskless at a family gathering. Irving reportedly has sat out due to the U.S. Capitol riots from Jan. 6 and has been away from the team due to personal reasons.
Well, the six-time All-Star was on track to return Saturday when Brooklyn takes on the Orlando Magic. But according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews, Irving will be out to the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
As for that maskless video? He reportedly was fined a hefty amount.
When Irving does return to the court, he’ll be alongside new teammate James Harden, who was traded to the Nets from the Houston Rockets in a blockbuster deal.
