If you’ve got tickets for tonight’s Sixers-Nets exo at the Wells, don’t expect to see anti-vaxx asshole Kyrie Irving (11 above) playing for Brooklyn.

As the New York Post reports:

The Nets have are finally coming to terms with the very real likelihood Kyrie Irving is going to miss a number of regular-season home games as a vaccine holdout. And as the Oct. 24 home opener draws closer by the day, they admit they have no clue how many.

“I think we recognize he’s not playing home games,” said Steve Nash, adding Irving did not even travel with the team for Monday’s preseason tilt at Philadelphia. “We’re going to have to for sure play without him this year; so it just depends on when, where and how much.”

Sunday’s comments from the Nets were the most clear and transparent since the Irving drama began.

New York City mandates had barred Irving from playing or practicing at home due to his refusal to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Last week’s ruling that HSS Training Center was a private office gave him a loophole, with Sunday his first home practice this preseason, and first at all since Oct. 2 in San Diego.
