Kyrie Irving is expected to be unavailable for Wednesday’s matchup between the Nets and the Pacers. Brooklyn superstar is out with right groin soreness.

Irving has been pretty healthy this season, averaging 27.6 points. The Nets are already missing Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Spencer Dinwiddie.

As a result, James Harden is expected to lead the team on Wednesday’s matchup vs. Pacers. The trio of Durant, Harden and Irving has started six games together so far this season.

Brooklyn is just 1-2 when Harden plays without Irving or Durant. The Nets have the second best record in the East at 27-13.
