The Brooklyn Nets announced prior to the 2019-20 NBA season being suspended back in March that star guard Kyrie Irving would be out for the duration.
Irving, 28, played in just 20 games with the Nets prior to going down with what was then described as a season-ending injury.
That’s no longer the case. Months removed from undergoing surgery, Irving was seen on the court doing basketball drills on Tuesday. While he was not working out at the Nets’ still-shuttered practice facility, this is great news. It seems to suggest that Irving will be good to go when (or if) the season resumes.
Irving is averaging 27.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists in what has been a drama-filled first season in Brooklyn.
For their part, the Nets currently sit at 30-34 and as the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. A determination whether the 2019-20 season will resume amid the ongoing pandemic should be made within the next few weeks. If it does continue, Irving should be ready to go.
