Although the Brooklyn Nets are full of stars, they can’t put them all on the floor at the same time, and the final stages of the regular season can also be spent without Kyrie Irving.
In the Chicago game last night, he bent over the head of Montenegro center Nikola Vučević. Painful contact occurred during the struggle for the jump, and it was clear that there was no intention.
Vučević fell into Irving’s sight in the fall, and the Nets star still lay for a long time, frightening his teammates and fans.

However, after this incident in the third quarter, he walked off the floor alone, but did not return to the game.
The good news is that he has not suffered a concussion, but his face is swollen. Coach Steve Nash (Steve Nash) said that the X-ray inspection is not clear enough, so Irving will conduct a new inspection that day.
Irving will not miss a game at best, but he will definitely wear a protective mask until further notice.
When Irving was injured, the Nets had a great advantage. They defended to the end and won 115:107. Kyrie ended the night with 13 points, and Kevin Durant steadily led the Nets with 21 points.
Before the start of the playoffs, the Nets are still waiting for James Harden to recover. They are fighting for the highest peak in the East. In the remaining three games, they theoretically managed to surpass Philadelphia, but also lost to the Milwaukee Bucks.
