Global Tech News Daily

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.

Global Tech News Daily

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 Dave Early @DavidEarly

From Nets PR:

No change to Ben Simmons’ status

Drummond (left knee soreness) – QUESTIONABLE

Thomas (left hand sprain) – QUESTIONABLE

Durant (left knee – MCL sprain) – OUT

Harris (left ankle surgery) – OUT

Simmons (return to competition reconditioning) – OUT

Irving – OUT – 1:50 PM Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina

Andre Drummond (left knee soreness) and Cam Thomas (left hand sprain) are questionable to play tonight. Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons and Joe Harris remain OUT. – 1:03 PM Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose

Drummond is questionable for the Nets. KD, Harris, Simmons, and Kyrie are all out. Cam Thomas is questionable – 1:03 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nets status report for tonight in Toronto: Drummond (left knee soreness) – QUESTIONABLE

Thomas (left hand sprain) – QUESTIONABLE

Durant (left knee – MCL sprain) – OUT

Harris (left ankle surgery) – OUT

Simmons (return to competition reconditioning) – OUT

Irving – OUT – 1:03 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

NYC may change their mandates soon, which means Kyrie Irving playing in Brooklyn might be right around the corner. Another interesting decision looms soon for him & BKN: Irving’s next contract.

For @spotrac I looked at Irving’s options for his next deal:

spotrac.com/research/nba/w… – 8:25 AM Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

#DidYouKnowFlow: The #Sixers‘ trio of James Harden, Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey have better numbers through two games than the #BrooklynNets‘ Big Three of Harden, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant last season. – 7:12 AM Emiliano Carchia @Sportando

New York mayor says making an exception for Kyrie Irving would send wrong message sportando.basketball/en/new-york-ma… – 5:22 AM Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

Big losers of this season: Nets season ticket holders. The stars rarely play (Kyrie Irving never, Ben Simmons who knows) and the team just fell to 13-17 at home. – 9:50 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Updated: Eric Adams ‘would do anything’ for a #Nets title — except give Kyrie Irving special treatment. #NBA @NYCMayor nypost.com/2022/02/28/eri… via @nypostsports – 8:18 PM Eric Koreen @ekoreen

Between VanVleet, Anunoby, Harris, Durant, Irving and Simmons, six of the top seven highest-paid players in this game are out. – 6:58 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Reporter: has coach Steve Nash or anyone else in the organization talked to Kyrie Irving about getting the shot anymore? 

“No.”

-coach Nash offers his POV on the latest from NYC Mayor Eric Adams and possible vaccine mandate changes pic.twitter.com/2eSPr7JqV3 – 6:57 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Yes, Irving lives in NJ. But the mandate applies to athletes who play for visiting teams, not NYC “home teams.” Kyrie is employed by the #Nets, a New York City team, and thus he is covered by Key2NYC, regardless of his residence. #NBA – 6:47 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Since many have asked for clarification on why Kyrie Irving still can’t play at home: The private sector employee mandate applies to nearly all NYC private businesses — big or small. It has the same non-resident athlete exception as Key2NYC, which doesnt apply to Irving. #Nets – 6:46 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Reporting with @C_Sommerfeldt: Kyrie Irving’s New Jersey residency status does not exempt him from New York City’s vaccine mandate — even if there’s verbiage in the mandate that suggests otherwise.

More from an Adams administration official @NYDNSports: nydailynews.com/sports/basketb… – 6:23 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Nash says nobody in the organization has had any communication with Kyrie about getting the vaccination. He’s made his stance clear and the Nets aren’t pushing him on it. – 5:58 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Asked if he’s re-engaged talks with Kyrie Irving to get vaccinated, Steve Nash says “No.” – 5:56 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash says he hasn’t spoken to Kyrie Irving about him getting vaccinated. – 5:56 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
