Nets ban Kyrie Irving from team until heâ€™s vaccinated
In the wake of Nets star Kyrie Irvingâ€™s apparent refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19, the 29-year-old will not play until he does, the team announced in a surprise statement Tuesday morning.
Exactly one week before the Nets kick off their regular season against the Bucks, the team announced Irving will not practice or play â€” even during away games, where he is allowed to participate.
â€œGiven the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant,â€ the statement read. â€œKyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently, the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.
