The Brooklyn Nets are hoping to have their full roster of players available as soon as possible, but are still without point guard Kyrie Irving. The Nets decided to omit Irving from the team on 12 October because he hadn't been vaccinated against Covid-19.
Nets owner Joe Tsai said that as long as New York City continues its mandate that all players must be vaccinated, he isn't sure when Kyrie will be back in the side.
"I don't know," Tsai said. "Either he has to be vaccinated in order to come back if the New York mandate is still in place. And don't ask me when they may or may not change the New York mandate.”
"Obviously Kyrie has his own belief so I respect that. But we have to make a team decision. This is not a decision about him. This is a decision about where we go as a team.”
