Kyrie Irving out Thursday vs. Philly

USA Today Sports

Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving is out for Thursday night’s matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers due to personal reasons.

The Nets will be short-handed facing the Sixers without Irving, Kevin Durant, and Spencer Dinwiddie.

It could turn into a rough night for Brooklyn facing the Sixers that currently have the best record in the league at 7-1.

Brooklyn will look for Joe Harris and Caris LeVert to step up and play well in Irving’s absence.

Irving is off to a tear to start the 2020-21 season, averaging 27.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.1 assists, and 1.6 steals per game.
