NBA Reviewing Videos of Kyrie Irving Circulating Social Media



Kyrie Irving

Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving is not expected to rejoin the team this week as videos continue to surface on social media that show Irving attending a family birthday party without a mask, according to ESPN’s Malika Andrews and Adrian Wojnarowski.

Irving has already been ruled out for Tuesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets, which would mark his fourth straight missed game, and he is expected to miss Wednesday’s game against the New York Knicks and Saturday’s game against the Orlando Magic, at a minimum.

The NBA is expected to review the videos which show a smiling Irving is dancing with his sister Asia, and if the video is found to be recent, it could be a breach of the league’s coronavirus protocols.
