Irving, who signed a 4-year, $141 million contract with the Nets last summer, has played just 20 games this season, averaging 27.4 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.4 assists.
Kenny Atkinson said he “wouldn’t go there” when asked if there’s a concern Irving will miss the rest of the season. Right now, the plan is that he will see a specialist and go from there. Atkinson said the shoulder has been continuously bothering Irving.
