Kyrie Irving will miss a lot of money if he insists on remaining unvaccinated ahead of the 2021/22 season.

The superstar of the Brooklyn Nets could lose up to $15.6M if he misses the 41 home games of the team this year.

“Reporting with Bobby Marks: The NBA and the NBPA have agreed to a reduction in pay of 1/91.6th of a player’s salary for each game an unvaccinated player misses in their home market because of local laws. For example, Kyrie Irving would lose roughly $381,000 per game,” Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.

Irving has until October 19 to get the vaccine and be available for the home games of the Nets at Barclays Center.
