Kyrie Irving still isn’t ready to rejoin the Brooklyn Nets.
Irving, who sat out of the Nets’ games on Thursday and Friday, missed Sunday’s 129-116 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Barclays Center due to “personal reasons,” the team announced on Sunday morning.
It’s still unclear why Irving is out.
“Ky’s still on personal leave and all the communication with Ky, between the organization, I’m going to keep private and I’m sure you’ll hear from him at some point,” Nets coach Steve Nash said before the game, via USA Today.
Though neither he nor Nash will explain the reasoning behind his absence, the New York Post’s Brian Lewis reported that Irving’s “personal reasons” are a response to the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
