Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Irving out vs. Memphis Grizzlies due to personal reasons, status vs. Oklahoma City to be determined


Kyrie Irving did not travel to Memphis with the Nets on Friday night and his status for Sunday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder has yet to be determined, coach Steve Nash said.

Irving did not play in the Brooklyn Nets‘ 122-109 victory over the visiting Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night because of personal reasons.

Irving has been in contact with several members of the Nets organization, including Nash, who said Friday he has messaged with the star point guard.

Caris LeVert, who had 22 points and 10 assists in Thursday’s win, said after the game Irving is dealing with a personal issue and that he texted teammates before the game.

Forward Kevin Durant, who is in quarantine after being exposed to someone who tested positive for COVI-19, was also out against the Sixers. Nash said that if Durant continues to test negative, he could be available to play in Sunday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Nets were also without guard Tyler Johnson, who has been placed in the NBA’s health and safety protocols. Nash said Johnson has not tested positive for the coronavirus but is not playing while he goes through contact tracing. It is unrelated, Nash said, to Durant being out.
