The Nets will be without Kyrie Irving for a third straight game Wednesday vs. the Hornets, the team has announced. He’s still suffering from shoulder impingement.
It’ll now be three straight games that Kyrie Irving is out with his right shoulder impingement as Kenny Atkinson says he’ll be inactive tomorrow night against Charlotte. Lingering issue that only is healed with rest and recovery time.— Billy Reinhardt (@BillyReinhardt) November 19, 2019
The Nets have won one and lost one since Irving went down.
Meanwhile, the Nets also sent two little used players to Long Island for practice, then brought them back later in the day.
The Brooklyn Nets have assigned Rodions Kurucs and (surprisingly) David Nwaba to their NBA G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, for today’s practice, per PR.— Billy Reinhardt (@BillyReinhardt) November 19, 2019
Kurucs played last weekend for Long Island, then returned to Brooklyn for the Pacers game.
Any player with three or fewer years in the NBA can be assigned to the G League.
In a piece of good news, Caris LeVert announced he’s moving from recovery to rehab following thumb ligament surgery last week.
Nets’ Caris LeVert said he got his cast off of his thumb this morning and is now wearing a small splint. Now, the rehab process begins.— Malika Andrews (@malika_andrews) November 19, 2019
