Kyrie Irving won’t play for the Nets until he’s vaccinated.
Irving is one of the most notable vaccine holdouts in the NBA, and because of New York’s local mandates, he can’t participate in games until he gets his shots.
Well, he will no longer be allowed to compete at all until he meets NYC’s requirements.
General manager Sean Marks stated the following in part in a Tuesday release:
We have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant. Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently, the choice restricts his ability to be a full-member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability.
