Faced with the prospect of playing home games without unvaccinated guard Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets have decided to completely sideline the NBA All-Star until a permanent solution can be reached.
Irving, who is unvaccinated, was expected to miss home games this season due to New York's vaccine mandate. He would have been able to practice in Brooklyn because the team's training center is considered a private workplace and not a public arena.
However, the Nets are now saying that Irving will not be playing or practicing with the Nets whatsoever.
'Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant,'
