Ian Begley: Nets coach Steve Nash says, as of now, team is operating under assumption that Kyrie Irving won’t be available for home games due to local vaccination ordinance. As he has said previously when asked about Irving, Nash notes that things can change at any moment.

Steve Nash said Kyrie Irving practiced today. Did everything. He won’t travel with the team to Philadelphia. Nash is still uncertain of Paul Millsap’s status going forward. – 1:29 PM

Kyrie Irving is at the Nets facility in Brooklyn for today’s practice. It’s his first practice at the team facility this season. City Hall ruled earlier this week that the local vaccine mandate didn’t apply to the Nets’ practice facility, which is deemed a private office. – 12:58 PM

Nets say Kyrie Irving is practicing with the team today. Unclear on what he’s done and his status for tomorrow’s game in Philly. – 12:57 PM

Kyrie Irving is here at practice, per Nets PR. His status for tomorrow’s 76ers game in Philly is unclear. #Nets12:52 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Kyrie Irving is here at HSS for #Nets practice. Unclear yet specifically what he’s done or exactly what drills he’s taken part in, but he’s in the building. #NBA12:50 PM

Just curious: How do my fellow gym owners feel about unvaccinated Kyrie Irving being able to train at the Nets’ “private office building,” while they remain under NYC mandate to turn away unvaccinated patrons in their own private businesses? pic.twitter.com/hsiKZ9PNMk8:06 AM

Oakley doesn’t think KI’s absence will be that big of a deal, though … after all, it helps they still have Kevin Durant and James Harden. “I think they can still win it with him playing this way,” Oakley said on TMZ Live this week. “You still have James Harden and KD — 2 of the top 5 best players in the league.” Oakley — who’s coming out with his own cooking show, “Chopping It Up with Oakley,” added, “They wasn’t healthy last year, so you think if James Harden comes back healthy this year with KD healthy, they still can win it even if Kyrie play only half of the season.” -via TMZ.com / October 9, 2021
