Facing Raptors in playoffs was one reason James Harden was concerned about Kyrie Irving vaccine status
© Provided by HoopsHype A quick aside: According to a source, the prospect of playing the Raptors in the postseason was one of the reasons James Harden was concerned about Kyrie Irving’s vaccine status earlier in the season. Harden, as you know, forced a trade from Brooklyn to the Philadelphia 76ers prior to the deadline.

Kyrie Irving adds stepmother as new agent, ready to return for key 3-game stretch with Brooklyn Nets nj.com/nets/2022/03/k… – 12:26 PM Michael Gallagher @MikeSGallagher

We have a 76-minute sample (76ers sample!) of Embiid with Harden.

Global Tech News Daily

Embiid’s per-36 stats in that time: 36.6 points, 9.5 boards, 2.4 dimes

Harden’s with Embiid: 20.4 points, 9.0 boards, 13.3 dimes

Also, in 34 minutes without Embiid as a 76ers, Harden has a per-36 line of 41/8/9 – 12:17 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Nothing has changed for Kyrie Irving, re: mayor Adams lifting the indoor vaccine mandate. Irving remains ineligible to play at Barclays Center (and Madison Square Garden), as @C_Sommerfeldt and I reported earlier this week nydailynews.com/sports/basketb… – 11:44 AM Noah Levick @NoahLevick

Shake Milton said his goal over the rest of the regular season is to secure a rotation spot.

Shake Milton on the @Philadelphia 76ers growing chemistry after adding James Harden to the roster:

“I can just tell from our mentality, the mindset of the team – everyone’s unselfish. We want to win.” – 11:23 AM Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann

Final” Heat beat the Nets 113-107. Brooklyn blew a 16-point lead. Kevin Durant with 31 in his return, Bruce Brown with a season-high 21. Nets now head to Boston and get Kyrie Irving back for a three-game road trip. – 10:03 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

I know Kyrie Irving’s somewhere with his fist balled like Arthur right now. – 9:42 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

Joel Embiid has obviously had a helluva season, but James Harden wants to make his life a bit easier out on the floor #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2022/03/03/jam… via @SixersWire – 7:51 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

James Harden is just 4 triples away from passing Reggie Miller on the all time 3-point list. He discussed that as he’s in the verge of making history. #Sixers sixerswire.usatoday.com/2022/03/03/six… via @SixersWire – 7:49 PM The Ringer @ringernba

Joe Harris will have season-ending ankle surgery, Brooklyn Nets GM Sean Marks said in an interview with YES Network. “He is what defines a Brooklyn Net,” Marks said. The Nets acquired Seth Curry in the James Harden trade partly as insurance if Harris couldn’t return this season. – 7:26 PM Gina Mizell @ginamizell

Doc Rivers has been adamant since the Harden trade that the Sixers would survey the buyout market for a backup center. After Paul Reed…and Paul Millsap…and (technically) Willie Cauley-Stein, can DeAndre Jordan fill that role?

Kyrie Irving hires stepmother Shetellia Riley Irving as new agent

Got some great quotes from @PaulHudrick and @JGrieb10 from Joel Embiid. Definitely check out what Joel had to say about GMs with burner accounts, Harden, Maxey’s work ethic, and Sixers culture

Not mentioning that Kyrie hired his step-mother as his agent is a truly bizarre approach to breaking news. – 2:11 PM The Ringer @ringernba

It appears the Nets will have Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving available for Sunday’s showdown with the #Celtics at TD Garden masslive.com/celtics/2022/0… – 5:20 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have played a total of 82 minutes together this season.

Durant returns on Thursday at home.

Irving, of course, will not play. – 4:13 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

The Nets miss KD and Kyrie every night — but the pair’s absence was particularly apparent in the fourth quarter tonight. Curry hit a couple big shots, but Brooklyn didn’t have a closer to go to down the stretch to get things back on track. – 9:57 PM Eric Koreen @ekoreen

If the Raps play the Nets without KD, Simmons and Kyrie in the Play-In, I think they’ll win. – 7:54 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Andre Drummond (left knee soreness) and Cam Thomas (left hand sprain) are both questionable for the #Nets tonight. Kevin Durant (left knee – MCL sprain), Joe Harris (left ankle surgery), Ben Simmons (return to competition reconditioning) and Kyrie Irving are out at the #Raptors. – 3:46 PM Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

The Nets’ blame game should start and end with Kyrie Irving nydailynews.com/sports/basketb… – 2:44 PM
