When is Kyrie Irving going to return? Nobody knows
The Brooklyn Nets really got unlucky this season. In the summer they made some incredible business and signed decorated free agent as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, but because of injury problems they were almost unable to use them. And things are not getting better. Let’s discuss this while we make some new free betting picks for you.
Kevin Durant’s situation is pretty clear – the two time NBA champion is not going to play this season because of his torn Achilles tendon. He’s still recovering from his surgery and it’s going to be a long process.
For Kyrie Irving the situation is not very pleasant as well. He already missed 26 games for the Nets because of a shoulder injury and it seems that he still can’t fully recover. When he got in action he showed his worth and scored 54 points against the Chicago Bulls, but that shoulder is still causing him problems.
Brooklyn Nets’ head coach Kenny Atkinson confirmed that Kyrie Irving can’t play against the 76ers on Thursday, but the biggest problem is that nobody knows when he’s going to return at all. Atkinson confirmed that Irving is still in pain because of his shoulder and right now the doctors can’t say when he’s going to return on the floor.
At this point Kenny Atkinson didn’t want to comment if there’s a possibility to see Kyrie Irving missing the rest of the season in the NBA. Irving is going to see another specialist now and seek a second opinion.
According to some pundits, Brooklyn Nets won’t have a chance in the playoffs if Kyrie Irving is not fit. He’s really an important player for the team right now.
