As the NBA world continued to wonder whereof the Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving is, team leader Kevin Durant returned from his COVID-19 quarantine on Monday to play for the Nets and received questions about Irving’s whereabouts.

Irving is four games into a leave from the team for personal reasons that head coach Steve Nash initially knew nothing about.

The 28-year-old guard was then seen on social media partying in a video that the NBA is now investigating amid COVID protocols that bar such activity. Durant would not speak on Irving’s situation, saying they support him 100%.

Irving (personal) isn’t expected to play in any of the Nets’ three games this week, including matchups Tuesday with the Nuggets, Wednesday with the Knicks, and Saturday with the Magic, as Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
