NBA: Kyrie Irving skips Brooklyn Nets game, Steve Nash unaware

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving did not show up in their game against the Philadephia 76ers on Thursday night according to several reports.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that Irving skipped the game due to personal reasons.

Joe Vardon added head coach Steve Nash tried to reach out to Irving as he was not informed of the all-star guard’s decision to skip the game.

It was not clear to Nash why Irving opted not to suit up in the game.

The Nets are already without Kevin Durant, who is still under quarantine but is expected to return anytime next week.
