Kyrie Irving’s Nets absence to continue

Nets star guard Kyrie Irving will miss his fourth consecutive game, the team announced Monday.

Irving has been sidelined because of personal reasons and his absence will continue for Tuesday’s clash with the Nuggets.

When asked for an update on Irving’s status, Nets coach Steve Nash told reporters: “I do not have any updates, sorry.”

While star teammate Kevin Durant returned Sunday in the Nets’ loss to the Thunder, NBA champion and six-time All-Star Irving was missing once again.

Irving is averaging 27.1 points, 6.1 assists and 5.3 rebounds per game in Brooklyn this season.

The Nets (5-6) have lost back-to-back games and sit tied for ninth in the Eastern Conference with the Knicks and Cavaliers.
