Nets' Kyrie Irving: Overcomes shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving said Oct. 1 in an interview with teammate Kevin Durant on "The ETCs with Kevin Durant" podcast that he's fully healthy after undergoing right shoulder surgery March 3.

Irving's first season in Brooklyn was an injury-plagued mess, as the star point guard was limited to just 20 appearances while missing time due to knee and hamstring injuries in addition to multiple aggravations of the shoulder issue that eventually required surgery. Even before the past season, Irving has hardly a paragon of health, having surpassed the 70-game mark only once the 2014-15 campaign. As such, fantasy managers planning on investing in Irving in drafts need to take his durability concerns into consideration, though he should continue to produce at an elite level when he's healthy enough to play. Having a healthy Durant (Achilles) in the fold in 2020-21 may result in Irving sacrificing some usage, but he'll likely remain one of the NBA's most efficient scorers out of the backcourt. Irving has converted on at least 47 percent of his attempts from the field in each of the last four seasons.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Won't play when season resumes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (shoulder) will not be available when the NBA season resumes in Orlando in July, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Few details have emerged since Irving underwent surgery on his right shoulder in early March, but Wojnarowski confirmed Friday that the procedure was, indeed, season-ending. Even with a lengthy delay, Irving will set his sights on a return to action to begin the 2020-21 season, which is currently slated to begin in December. Brooklyn expects to have Kevin Durant (Achilles) available to make his Nets debut at that time, as well.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Uncertain to return in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nets general manager Sean Marks said Wednesday that Irving (shoulder) isn't a safe bet to return to the court even if the suspended NBA season is resumed later in summer, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.

Irving was ruled out for the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery March 3, but the NBA's decision to suspend operations indefinitely less than two weeks later may keep the door open for the star point guard to suit up again in 2019-20. Even so, the Nets likely won't have a good gauge of where Irving stands in his recovery for several weeks, as the team won't be able to hold regular meetings or practices to check in on him. Expect a clearer update on Irving's situation to arrive once the NBA gives teams the green light to reconvene for workouts.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Surgery completed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nets announced Tuesday that Irving underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder, ending his season, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

News surfaced coming out of the All-Star break that Irving would need a procedure, but the point guard waited approximately two weeks before going under the knife. Irving is expected to be good to go for the start of the 2020-21 season, when he'll play alongside Kevin Durant (Achilles) for the first time. Irving wraps up his first season in Brooklyn with averages of 27.4 points, 6.4 assists, 5.2 rebounds, 2.8 three-pointers and 1.4 steals in 32.9 minutes per game over a career-low 20 appearances.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Will undergo season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.

Irving tweaked the same shoulder injury that cost him 26 games earlier in the season, and after further evaluation, arthroscopic surgery was ultimately deemed necessary. The point guard is expected to be back in time for summer workout. Irving's first season with the Nets was overshadowed by his balky shoulder, as he appeared in just 20 games, averaging 27.4 points, 6.4 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 32.9 minutes.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Out indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving aggravated his right shoulder injury and will remain out indefinitely, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.

Speaking to the media Tuesday, coach Kenny Atkinson revealed that Irving tweaked the same shoulder that already cost him 26 games earlier this season. He'll meet with a specialist later in the week, at which point the hope is that a clear timetable will be handed down. However, given how much time he's already missed -- plus the fact that the Nets are essentially in a holding pattern this season -- it wouldn't be a surprise if the team handles Irving with extreme caution over the next two months.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Won't return before break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (knee) is officially listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.

As anticipated, Irving will be held out for a fifth consecutive game due to the sprained right knee he suffered Feb. 2. The Nets will head into the All-Star break following the contest, so Irving will have an extended opportunity to heal with the Nets not back on the schedule until Feb. 20 at Philadelphia. Irving's absence for at least one more game will afford more opportunities for Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert to handle the ball and put up shots.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Won't play on road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (knee) will not play during the Nets' upcoming two-game road trip, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.

Irving will continue to miss time with a sprained right knee. Following the Nets' road trip, the team has one game at home against the Raptors before the All-Star break.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Out at least one week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving has a medial ligament sprain in his right knee and will be re-evaluated in a week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Irving left Saturday's game against the Wizards with the injury. The earliest he could return would be Feb. 10 in Indiana, though a clearer picture of when he's expected back may not emerge until around that time. Spencer Dinwiddie will likely move back into the starting lineup in Irving's absence.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Getting MRI on sprained knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving has been ruled out for the remainder of Saturday's game against the Wizards due to a right knee sprain and will need to get an MRI on Sunday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowksi reports.

It looks like the injury bug has bitten Irving once again, though the severity of the injury is unknown at this point. The star point guard has only dressed for 20 of a possible 48 games in his first season with the Nets, and he could be headed for another extended absence pending the results of Sunday's MRI.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Leaves Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving left Saturday's game against the Wizards to have his right knee checked, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Irving was removed with 5:29 remaining and just after losing the ball. He headed to the locker room to be evaluated. Taurean Prince replaced him.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Scores season-high 54 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving exploded for 54 points (19-23 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 9-10 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Friday's 133-118 win over the Bulls.

Aside from notching his best scoring performance wearing a Nets uniform, this was one of Kyrie's most effective games in his career since he only missed two threes, two two-point shots and one free throw in the entire contest. Fantasy owners can't expect Irving to sniff the 50-point mark -- or even the 40-point threshold -- on a nightly basis, but he should remain Brooklyn's main scoring threat and go-to guy on offense as long as he's healthy.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Scores 20 versus Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving finished with 20 points (7-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 125-115 win over the Pistons.

Irving returned to the lineup after sitting out Sunday's matchup versus the Knicks following the death of Kobe Bryant. Irving wasn't all that efficient in this one, amassing almost as many turnovers (four) as dimes, but he was able to lead his team to victory. His next two tilts are against two more poor defensive clubs (Bulls on Friday, Wizards on Saturday), so he could very well put together a big stat line in at least one of those.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (personal) will play Wednesday against the Pistons, Anthony Puccio of NetsDaily.com reports.

Irving sat out the Nets' previous game as he took some time to deal with the passing of Kobe Bryant, a mentor of his. But Irving will be back in action against the Pistons on Wednesday. In nine home games this season, he's averaging 28.3 points, 6.8 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 31.7 minutes.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Expected to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (personal) is expected to play Wednesday against the Pistons, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

While the Nets have yet to confirm Irving's availability, the expectation is that the veteran guard will take the court after sitting out Sunday's game while mourning the tragic death of his mentor, Kobe Bryant. Irving has appeared in six games this month, posting averages of 24.8 points, 5.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 32.2 minutes.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Status cloudy for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (personal), who practiced Tuesday, is off the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Pistons. However, coach Kenny Atkinson noted he would not "speak for Kyrie" and it remains unclear if Irving will play or not, Anthony Puccio of NetsDaily.com reports.

While Irving being off the injury report is a good sign, it hasn't been confirmed that he'll be available Wednesday. More information may arrive following morning shootaround. If he's out again, Spencer Dinwiddie would presumably draw another start.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Practices with team Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving (personal) was spotted practicing with the team Tuesday, freelance writer Christopher Lavinio reports.

Irving failed to take the court Sunday following the tragic death of his mentor, Kobe Bryant, and while it's good to see him back out on the practice floor, his availability for Wednesday against Detroit remains in question. The team is optimistic that he'll return to action after appearing "intense" and "engaged" during Tuesday's session, per Tina Cervasio of Fox 5 New York, though an update likely won't come until closer to tip.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks due to personal reasons, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Irving won't be taking the court following the tragic death of his mentor Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and three others earlier Sunday. Spencer Dinwiddie will likely start and see an increased role in Irving's place. Irving was coming off of a 45-point effort in a win over Detroit on Saturday.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Posts top scoring tally since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving submitted 40 points (15-30 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 10-10 FT), seven assists and six rebounds across 40 minutes Saturday in the Nets' 121-111 overtime victory over the Pistons.

After three down shooting performances in a row, Irving got back on track Saturday, delivering his second-most points of the season and his biggest scoring total in his six games since he returned from a shoulder injury earlier this month. The sterling outing was even more valuable in nine-category formats, as Irving committed just one turnover on the day.

Nets' Kyrie Irving: Posts 20 points in loss to Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irving put up 20 points (7-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in 33 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Lakers.

After sitting out of their last game following a sudden "questionable" tag just a few hours before tip-off due to hamstring tightness, Irving returned to face his former running mate in Lebron James. While the missed game prior to this one was only a one-game disappearing act, it would have been only his fifth game back from a 26-game absence. Irving has missed more contests than he's actually played in this season, making him a frustrating player to own in fantasy. If there's a silver lining, it's that Irving has played at a first-round level when he's been on the court.
