Kyrie Irving returned to practice two days after the death of his close friend and LA Lakers legend, Kobe Bryant.

Irving had missed the game against the New York Knicks on Sunday (26/01), a few hours after the tragic death of Bryant.

The star of the Brooklyn Nets, who was tremendously affected by the death of his friend, practiced with the team on Tuesday and will likely play against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday.

Bryant and his daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash in California on Sunday.
