NEW YORK CITY (WABC) – The Brooklyn Nets announced Tuesday morning that Kyrie Irving cannot play or practice with the team until he is vaccinated.

General Manager Sean Marks issued the following statement:

“Given the evolving nature of the situation and after careful consideration, we have decided that Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant. Kyrie has made a personal choice and we respect his individual right. to Election is currently limiting his ability to be a full-time member of the team and we do not allow any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.It is imperative that we continue to build chemistry as a team and remain true to our long-established values ​​of unity and sacrifice.Our championship goals for the season have not changed and to achieve these goals every member of our organization must pull in the same direction.We are excited about the start of the season and look forward to a successful campaign that will make the Brooklyn neighborhood proud. “

Irving has not been to Nets for any of their exercises in New York, where professional athletes must be vaccinated against COVID-19 to practice or play.

The Nets are prevented by law from revealing whether he has been vaccinated, but listed him as “unfit to play” in the injury report for their pre-season game against Milwaukee on Friday.

There is nothing related to the NBA that would make a player have that designation.
