The Brooklyn Nets are preparing to face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday having Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving sharing the floor for the first time.

Irving will get back on court after missing seven games due to personal reasons and Nets’ general manager Sean Marks supported his superstar for taking his time to refocus and recharge.

“He even owned that in the press conference that he’s dealing with some personal stuff here, and without a doubt all of us … from time to time … need to take a step back and recharge or refocus. All we can do is support Ky and make sure we’re doing everything we possibly can, and helping him.

Irving addressed his absence with his teammates, the franchise and the media the previous days explaining that he needed a timeout.

“All I can tell you is I had terrific conversation with Kyrie this morning he’s excited about getting back on the court. He’s addressed the team as a group and also individually with the guys as well,” Marks said.

The Brooklyn Nets are set to face the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.
