Kyrie Irving cleared quarantine after missing the last six games of his team due to personal reasons. The Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash did not reveal any specific future date for Irving’s return.
(via Brian Lewis of NY Post):
“Well, we don’t practice. They have to be off their legs, so we try to teach and script and rehearse and watch film. But he’s getting his work in individually and maybe (Sunday) he can do some things with the Stay Ready group,” Nash said of Irving. “We just want to make sure he has a few days in his legs before he gets thrown back in the fire.”
The Nets finalized James Harden’s trade on Friday and the 2018 MVP made his debut on Saturday with his new team. The Nets overcame Orlando thanks to Kevin Durant’s 42-point performance.
Harden followed his new teammate with a 32-point triple-double in a historic debut. Irving has been away from basketball for almost two weeks.
The Nets will probably ease up his return to the NBA courts.
