The Brooklyn Nets announced after Friday’s 116-97 victory over Sacramento that Kyrie Irving would miss the team’s forthcoming road trip, a three-game swing through New York, Cleveland and Boston. The lead guard has missed the team’s four previous games with a shoulder impingement believed to be suffered during their Nov. 12 loss to Denver.
The Nets announce Kyrie Irving will miss the next three games, including the game against Boston on Wednesday.
