After missing Saturday’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, the Brooklyn Nets have their point guard back. Kyrie Irving had been sidelined due to a right index finger sprain, which had been deemed a day-to-day injury. He has been cleared ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Pistons in Detroit.

Even with Irving back, the Nets are still running thin. Kevin Durant (health and safety protocols) is still in quarantine, and Nicolas Claxton (right knee tendinopathy), Spencer Dinwiddie, Reggie Perry (G League) and Iman Shumpert (hamstring) are all unavailable, as well.

The recently-acquired Noah Vonleh was not on Brooklyn’s injury report for Tuesday. However, he has not played in an NBA game since last season.

The Pistons are not expected to have Dennis Smith Jr. on Tuesday — Detroit just acquired him (and a 2021 second-round draft pick) from the New York Knicks in exchange for Derrick Rose. Additionally, Delon Wright (ankle) and Wayne Ellington (calf) are questionable for Detroit.
