Kyrie Irving has a huge decision to make. According to a report from Fox Sports, Irving has not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Brooklyn Nets have a roster full of shot makers: Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, but at least one of them won’t take two of them to help out his team for the upcoming season. Based on New York City’s recent vaccination mandate, Kyrie Irving won’t be unable to enter Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, if the season were to start today.
Nets general manager Sean Marks was asked about his players potentially missing time due to New York City’s vaccine mandate.
“Regarding if they could play today, I can’t comment on who could play and so forth. There would obviously be a couple people missing from that picture,” Marks said, via Fox News. “I won’t get into who it is, but we feel confident in the following several days before camp everybody would be allowed to participate and so forth.”
Last Monday, a New York mandate went into effect that requires all people over the age of 12 to have proof of vaccination to enter “certain covered premises” within the city.
Nets training camp is scheduled to open next week.
