Nets coach Kenny Atkinson told reporters Tuesday that Irving would see a specialist this week and that he would have more information on the guard's availability afterward.

The Brooklyn Nets have revealed that guard Kyrie Irving has re-aggravated the shoulder injury that cost him 26 games earlier this season.

Irving missed 26 consecutive games earlier this season with the right shoulder impingement. Some days you feel good, some days you don't feel good.

Irving is in the first season of a four-year, $141 million deal with the Nets.

Irving didn't travel to Boston when his Nets visited the Celtics on November 27.

Marks said he was disappointed that he and the Nets have gotten so little of a look at their full team this season.

Despite being limited to just 20 games in 2019-20, Irving is averaging 27.4 points on 39.4% 3-point shooting while adding 6.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds during his first campaign in Brooklyn.

Durant hasn't played this season due to a ruptured Achilles tendon, and recent reports have indicated there is a possibility he could return in the postseason.

This Brooklyn team had grown accustomed to playing without Irving, going 17-16 (.515) in games without the six-time All-Star. The Nets now sit 7th in the East with a 25-28 record.
