The Brooklyn Nets’ fans will have to wait to see Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and James Harden sharing the floor, as Irving is not ready to return for tonight’s matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks, per Adrian Wojnarowski.
This will be the seventh consecutive game Irving misses since January 5. The Brooklyn Nets’ superstar could return to action on Wednesday or Friday in Cleveland, according to Wojnarowski.
Irving was deemed unavailable since January 6 due to personal reasons. He missed four games before returning to the Nets and be placed in quarantine under the league’s health and safety protocols.
He started training with the rest of the team on Saturday, after clearing the NBA protocols. Since then, the Nets added to James Harden via trade to become a strong favorite for this season’s title.
Irving has averaged 27.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.1 assists in 33.0 minutes per game this season.
