    Kyrie Irving underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday and will miss the remainder of the season.

    It was announced that Irving would miss the season a few weeks back, so there aren't any fantasy implications from this procedure. Irving is hoping to be fully healed for offseason workouts in preparation to return alongside Kevin Durant for the 2020-21 season.

    Spencer Dinwiddie scored 22 points to go along with eight assists in 37 minutes on Thursday night.

    Dinwiddie is going to have to lead this team now that we've confirmed that Kyrie Irving will miss the rest of the campaign. He's going to be a decent scorer and a good source of assists and triples, but be wary of shooting struggles with the volume he is going to get.

    Kyrie Irving will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder and miss the rest of the season.

    Irving was trying to treat his ailing shoulder to avoid missing the rest of the year, but ultimately could not stave off the procedure. He can be dropped in all redraft formats while Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert are the big winners. Irving should be ready for next season, when the Nets will try and put together a title run behind Kyrie and Kevin Durant. GM Sean Marks said that Irving is expected to be ready for summer workouts.

    Shams Charania is reporting that Kyrie Irving is likely to undergo surgery on his right shoulder that will result in a significant absence.

    Irving has been bothered by a right shoulder impingement all season long and has been putting off surgery in hopes of playing down the stretch. That looks like it won't happen, with the procedure likely coming with his long-term future in mind. Irving will be a drop as soon as the Nets make this official, while Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert are in line for big finishes to the season.

    Brian Lewis of the New York Post is reporting that Kyrie Irving is expected to see a shoulder specialist as it is still bothering him.

    Irving is currently out with a knee injury, but that is said not to be an issue and is recovering fine, though the shoulder is still causing him problems. This is a glaring red flag as Irving missed 26 games earlier in the year because of the shoulder. Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert would stand to benefit the most should Irving's shoulder force him to miss additional time.

    Kyrie Irving (knee) is being ruled out ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Raptors.

    There still isn't a definitive timetable for Irving's return, but he will get another week of rest through the All-Star break, with the hope of being ready against the Sixers on February 20th. Spencer Dinwiddie will get another start at PG, while Caris LeVert will try to continue his recent hot stretch.

    It’s been nine days since the Nets said that Kyrie Irving would be re-evaluated in “one week”, but Kenny Atkinson said last night that there’s no update on his status.

    The Nets continue to monitor Kyrie’s injury on a daily basis and all signs point to the All-Star guard sitting out through the All-Star break. The hope is that Kyrie gets back next week but owners should wait for an official update.

    Kyrie Irving will stay home during the Nets' two-game road trip on Saturday and Monday against the Raptors and Pacers respectively.

    This was the expectation for Irving and the Nets have little pressure to rush him back. It's possible we'll see him before the All-Star break but you are probably already used to not relying on him at this point. It's a difficult situation.

    Despite Kyrie Irving’s statements that the Nets need more pieces to win, the trade deadline seems likely to come and go without the team being involved in any major deals.

    Realistically, any move the Nets make will have to be one that works in tandem with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. The Nets’ middle tier of players — Caris LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince — could theoretically be used to bring back a significant piece, but the gap between how incoming and outgoing salary is calculated makes any deal messy and unlikely. That leaves Wilson Chandler and second-year players such as Rodions Kurucs, Dzanan Musa and Theo Pinson, all of which are hard to generate any significant interest. Long story short, whatever move the Nets make is likely to be small, not seismic.

    Spencer Dinwiddie will start Monday's game in the absence of the injured Kyrie Irving.

    Caris LeVert will also be in the Nets' lineup. Dinwiddie has been terrific with season averages of 21.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 6.5 assists.

    Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a medial ligament sprain in his right knee and will be re-evaluated in one week.

    This is definitely some relatively good news considering the main fear here was an ACL tear. Irving has been known to extend timetables, so it's quite possible that he could miss a couple of weeks. We'll find out more info once he is re-evaluated. Spencer Dinwiddie and Garrett Temple should see larger roles in his absence.

    Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a right knee sprain and will not be returning to Saturday's game.

    The injury occurred late in the fourth quarter, so it isn't surprising that Irving was held out of the remainder. He finishe the night with 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, one trey, one steal and one block.

    Kyrie Irving injured his right knee in an awkward fall on Saturday and went back to the locker room.

    There's only a few minutes left so we'll see if Irving is able to get back on the floor, but we wouldn't bet on it. He was down grabbing his knee for quite some time before ultimately getting up under his own power and limping around a bit before checking out. Any absence would be big for the outlooks of Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert.

    Kyrie Irving went full ballistic mode to lead the Nets to a 133-118 win over the Bulls on Friday, recording a season-high 54 points on 19-of-23 shooting from the field and 9-of-10 at the line.

    Irving was unconscious, initially going 10-for-10 from the field early on. He also added five rebounds, 7-of-9 shooting from downtown as well as five assists and one steal to the box. This is the Irving-ceiling owners and fans dream about. He's an elite scorer who just got slowed by injuries this season. He is a top-12 value when he's on a tear like this with durability being his single biggest risk factor.

    Kyrie Irving returned to his usual spot in the starting lineup on Wednesday and dropped 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting, and chipped in five rebounds, five assists and two steals.

    Irving was emotional during the pregame ceremony honoring Kobe Bryant, but still turned in a strong performance. Irving is playing like top-5 player and is a safe bet to finish the season as a first-rounder.
