Kyrie Irving day-to-day with facial fracture after pickup game injury

Kyrie Irving

The Brooklyn Nets are already dealing with a minor injury three days before the start of training camp.

Kyrie Irving, who took an elbow to the face during a pickup basketball game on Tuesday, is day-to-day with a left side facial fracture, as confirmed by the team and first reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Irving took an errant elbow during a casual pickup game and could now miss some time. It’s not the start to the season the Nets were hoping for at all, even if it turns out to be a brief absence. Facial fractures are no minor thing, and it’s an open question as to how he’ll progress and whether he may need to be fitted for a mask.

There’s little evidence that he won’t be ready for the start of the regular season, though. That’s good news, because he can help troll the Knicks a little on his giveaway night.
