Within a span of a few hours, and to no shock, Kyrie Irving was given the go-ahead to play in Brooklyn’s road games to then being placed in health and safety protocols without touching the floor. The Nets have played nearly 30 games since the NBA Superstar had vehemently declined to adhere to NYCs indoor vaccine mandate. Irving tested positive for Covid-19 along with his All-Star teammates Kevin Durant and James Harden (the trio that made Modern Brooklyn a title-contending team). Cases of omicron have gone up dramatically in the city of New York to one case per day, and adding to the protocol list are giants like Giannis Antetokounmpo, Ja Morant, Antony Edwards, to name a few players in the league. Nets owner had put his faith into No. 11 to secure the championship this year.

Social-Media basketball sensation, LethalShooter, has suggested putting the whole league on pause for a week, to give NBA teams time for their players to bounce back. The soonest we will see Kyrie back in his jersey may be the 5th of January. As of this date, Kyrie still remains unvaccinated.
