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.

Irving, who left the Celtics as a free agent this summer, is averaging 28.5 ppg, 5.4 rpg and 7.2 apg, while shooting 44.4% overall and 34.1% from 3-point range in 33.8 minutes per game. He previously played for the Cavaliers, winning a championship in 2016 before a trade the following offseason.
