The Brooklyn Nets are unclear on Kyrie Irving’s ultimate decision on whether to get vaccinated and have not made a decision on whether they will accommodate him if he’s faced to be a part-time player.
There had previously been optimism that Irving would eventually get vaccinated, but that hope is waning. Irving’s continued resistance to vaccination has the Nets preparing for the possibility that they’ll be without him for home practices and games for the foreseeable future.
The Nets could keep Irving out altogether rather than just play in road games.
The Nets have been outwardly supportive of Irving’s process, but the collective patience of the organization has been tested.
Brooklyn believes they are a title contender even without Irving.
