The Brooklyn Nets are expected to travel to Orlando, Florida, as one of the 22 teams participating in the NBA's restart July 31, but don't expect point guard Kyrie Irving to join the team on the court.
After Kevin Durant told The Undefeated he would not be able to play for the Nets when the season resumes as he continues to rehab his knee, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that Irving would not be cleared to play either following shoulder surgery March 3.
The surgery was already believed to be season-ending for Irving, and the prolonged hiatus hasn't changed that timeline.
Per Wojnarowski, on a National Basketball Players Association call Friday, Irving said he would possibly travel to Orlando as an inactive player to support his teammates.
