Nets Daily: In exclusive interview with Joe Tsai, Nets owner tells NetsDaily, “I have all the patience in the world with Kyrie. He’s on the roster, just not on the court.” Tsai said he’s had “multiple conversations” with Irving but he’s tried not to evangelize. Bottom line: Nothing new.

“Yeah, we do miss Kyrie. We do. He’s a part of our team but for the most part we’ve been generating great shots…It’s just a matter of us knocking them down. It will come.
KD with a laugh – 10:46 PM

Kevin Durant also confirms that he still wants Kyrie Irving back. – 10:27 PM

So the Heat, in seven nights, has beaten the two Eastern teams widely picked to finish ahead of them. 106-93 over Brooklyn. Yes, Bucks/Nets were without Holiday, Lopez, Irving. But Heat without Oladipo and a buyout guy to be named later (Wall?). #toughnessandgrit9:55 PM

Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Finally seeing Tatum running crunch time high pick-and-roll with Horford, which was Boston’s go-to closing offense with IT and Kyrie. Wizards blitz Tatum up high and he can easily slip that pocket pass to Horford on the short roll now. – 9:53 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Last season, #Nets runs were powered by offense. Without Kyrie, this team is going to have to dig in and grind. They held the #Heat to 4-of-15 shooting – 0-of-4 from deep – with three turnovers over the final seven minutes of the half. – 8:43 PM

Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
FWIW, Jalen Rose says on air that w/o Kyrie the Nets aren’t better than the Bucks, Heat or Hawks in the East – 7:30 PM

#GrizzliesOTD in 2019: @Ja Morant blocked Kyrie Irving to force overtime and assisted @Jae Crowder on the game-winning, buzzer-beating 3-pointer to defeat the Brooklyn Nets 134-133.

Only name on Nets’ injury report for Wednesday vs. visiting Heat is Kyrie Irving. They list as “ineligible to play.” For Heat, Marcus Garrett has been sent to Sioux Falls on two-way contract. Otherwise, Oladipo is only player on injury report, as he remains out. – 4:42 PM

Kyrie Irving is the only player listed out ahead of tomorrow’s game against the Heat. – 4:31 PM

More on this storyline

Nets Daily: Tsai also reiterated that he’d “welcome” Irving back if he got vaxxed, but added that while he “respects” Irving’s decision he doesn’t really understand it. -via Twitter @NetsDaily / October 29, 2021

Tim MacMahon: Mavs G Trey Burke, who is not vaccinated, is out vs. Spurs tonight due to Covid protocols. Kristaps Porzingis will sit at least the first game of the back-to-back due to the lower back tightness that caused him to exit early in Tuesday’s win. -via Twitter @espn_macmahon / October 28, 2021

Harrison Wind: Breaking: Beginning November 10, anyone over 12-years-old will be required to present proof of a full COVID vaccination or a negative PCR or antigen test taken 72 hours prior to the event you are attending to enter Ball Arena for Nuggets and Avs games and concerts. -via Twitter @HarrisonWind / October 27, 2021
