According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, All-Star Kyrie Irving will soon play again for the Brooklyn Nets after serving a suspension for “behavior detrimental to the team.”
According to ESPN, Irving, who will miss his ninth straight game on Thursday when the Nets play the Portland Trailblazers, could play again on Sunday at the Barclays Center against the Memphis Grizzlies.
According to Tamika Tremaglio, executive director of the National Basketball Players Association, “Kyrie is continuing his journey of communication and education,” she told ESPN on Wednesday.
“He has been battling the full force of the consequences of his words and deeds, especially in the Jewish community.
Kyrie is committed to improving himself and broadening his knowledge, and he rejects antisemitism in all its manifestations.
After being given a minimum five-game punishment for first refusing to apologize for sharing a link to an antisemitic movie on his social media pages, Irving was given six milestones to meet nearly two weeks ago.
Since then, Irving has apologized publicly and had separate meetings with NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Nets owner Joe Tsai.
Tsai claimed the star guard does not have “beliefs of hatred against Jewish people” after meeting Irving.
Without Irving, while he’s been suspended, the Nets are 4-3.
The Nets have struggled through their first 15 games of the season, partly because of Irving’s absence and other roster difficulties.
