Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies. The former Duke star has missed the past eight games for the Nets because of a team-imposed suspension.
Irving is averaging 26.9 points on 45.3% shooting from the field and is dishing out 5.1 assists per game. Despite Brooklyn being 5-3 in its last eight games, the Nets sorely miss Irving’s presence and offensive firepower.
The numbers do not show it in terms of offensive rating (113.0 with Irving on the court and 113.1 with Irving off the floor), but Irving gives the Nets a second option who can create scoring chances for himself and others.
