Nets star Irving to miss Timberwolves clash
Kyrie Irving is set to sit out the Minnesota Timberwolves contest due to personal reasons, the Brooklyn Nets announced on Sunday.
The Brooklyn Nets will be without star Kyrie Irving for Monday's NBA game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Irving is set to sit out the Timberwolves clash due to personal reasons, the Nets announced on Sunday.
The 2016 champion and seven-time All-Star missed three games last month because of a family matter, with Irving playing in 38 of Brooklyn's 53 games this season.
Irving – who was ejected from Saturday's 126-101 loss to defending champions the Los Angeles Lakers – is averaging 27.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game in 2020-21.
Nets also missing Aldridge
The star-studded Nets – already missing superstar James Harden (hamstring) – will also be without LaMarcus Aldridge against the Timberwolves.
Seven-time All-Star Aldridge is listed as out for a non-coronavirus-related illness.
The Nets and Philadelphia 76ers both share 36-17 win-loss records atop the Eastern Conference.
