Nets' Kyrie Irving (right hamstring) out vs. 76ers

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving is out Monday vs. the Philadelphia 76ers with soreness in his right hamstring.

Irving just returned to the Nets lineup vs. the Hawks on Jan. 12 after dealing with a shoulder impingement. He’s missed 26 games this season. When playing, the All-Star guard has averaged 26.5 points, 6.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game this season.

The Nets have been struggling lately, having lost three straight games and nine of their last 12 games overall. Brooklyn is the No. 8 team in the Eastern Conference, but is just three games ahead of the Detroit Pistons for that spot.
