    Kyrie Irving, who missed time with a facial contusion, practiced on Wednesday and is expected to play on Friday.

    This is good news for his availability going forward. Irving should be selected by the second round this season in most leagues.

    Kyrie Irving (facial contusion) has been ruled out for Saturday’s preseason game against the Lakers.

    Irving re-aggravated his facial injury in the first quarter of the last preseason game and it’s fair for he and the team to decide that it was worth sitting the next one out to give it more time to heal. This doesn’t figure to linger with Irving much heading into the season. He is still a borderline first round pick.

    Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) re-aggravated his facial injury during the first minute of Thursday's preseason game against the Lakers after taking a shot to the face from Rajon Rondo.

    Irving looked to be in pain as he left the game and was ruled out for the remainder shortly after. The early word is that the team doesn't think it is too severe, but this will be a situation to monitor. Stay tuned.

    Kenny Atkinson said that Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) will play against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Irving was expected to be ready by opening night anyway but this is even better. The swelling had gone down enough for him to practice on Tuesday with a mask and he should be good to go going forward. There is no word on how long he will be playing with the mask but it is not something new to him as he has done so in both Boston and Cleveland. The game against the Lakers will take place in China where the teams will play a two-game set.

    Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) practiced on Tuesday with a mask on.

    It's good to see Irving returning to practice after he took an inadvertent elbow to the dace during a scrimmage last week. Irving should be good to go for opening night in what will be a high-usage role this season.

    Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) missed the second straight day of training camp.

    Irving was listed as day-to-day back on the 25th and will continue to be treated as so. There is likely still swelling that needs to go down before Irving could be fitted for a mask and return. This should not impact his availability for opening night.

    Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) missed the first day of training camp Saturday.

    Coach Kenny Atkinson explained that Irving missed the first day of training camp due to precautionary reasons. There doesn't appear to be any signs that the injury was serious and looks like he will be ready for the start of the season. Irving will have the reins to the offense and will be picked up in drafts within the first two rounds in standard leagues.

    Kyrie Irving is listed as day-to-day with a facial fracture after taking an elbow to the left side of his face during a scrimmage on Tuesday.

    The injury is unlikely to be a long-term concern for Irving. He should be a late first round or early second round selection in most drafts.

    Kyrie Irving took an elbow during Tuesday's training and will be unavailable for his scheduled press conference.

    We should have word soon on the exact nature of the injury, but it shouldn't have any impact on his regular-season availability. Irving is going to get a ton of usage as an early round-pick.

    The New York Post is reporting that Joseph Tsai, the co-founder of Chinese shopping site Alibaba, will spend $1.3 billion to purchase the remainder 51 percent of the Nets.

    The $2.35 billion transaction will mark the highest price ever paid for a sports franchise, beating hedge fund owner David Tepper’s $2.2 billion acquisition of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers last year and Tilman Fertitta’s $2.2 billion purchase of the Rockets in 2017. The sale comes at a time when the Nets are still high off their recent off-season buying spree, which landed them contracts with NBA All-Star free agents Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Tsai was born in Taiwan, is a Canadian citizen, went to college at Yale and also owns the WNBA’s New York Liberty. For the NBA, which is looking to expand its footprint in the Chinese market, this is a potentially huge development as it will help with the international growth of the league even more.

    Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both have signed three-year deals with a player option for a fourth season.

    The three-and-one structure means that both can hit the market in the summer of 2022, paving the way for a little more flexibility and greater earning potential. Whether or not those options are exercised will depend on how things go in Brooklyn, as well as how Durant looks in his return from a torn Achilles.

    The Brooklyn Nets have made the signing of Kyrie Irving official on Sunday.

    Before being supplanted by the Clippers yesterday, Brooklyn had widely been considered to have won the offseason, and it all started with the commitment they received from Irving, which ultimately lead them to acquiring Kevin Durant as well. While KD rehabs this season, Irving will unquestionably be the number one option on this team, and should figure to produce first to second round value on a nightly basis.

    Kyrie Irving has agreed to a four-year contract worth $142 million with the Nets.

    Irving has a player option on the fourth season. He'll be joining forces with Kevin Durant but will be the team's leader next season while KD is on the mend, so hopefully he learns from last season's tumult in Boston. Uncle Drew should remain an elite fantasy asset in Brooklyn's fun scheme.

    Kyrie Irving will give the Nets a formal commitment when free agency opens, per Marc Stein, with the Nets still "aggressively pursuing" Kevin Durant and DeAndre Jordan.

    Brooklyn is hoping that Irving is enough to attract Durant and Jordan — who is Durant's close friend. The Nets are still armed with one max contract slot even after accounting for Irving, and they'll be able to put it to good use with Durant's decision coming tonight. Either they land KD or they can quickly pivot to snap up second and third-tier free agents.
