Kyrie Irving out vs. Hornets; Rodions Kurucs, David Nwaba sent to Long Island

NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Denver Nuggets Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.

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.
