Kyrie Irving has started on-court work in return from shoulder injury

Kyrie Irving Nets

The Brooklyn Nets have not given a timetable for Kyrie Irving’s return from a shoulder injury, but he does appear to be closer to a return.

The Nets guard has not played since November 14 after hurting his shoulder in a November 12 game. He’s already missed eight games in a row and is set to miss a ninth on Sunday. However, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson says Irving has begun on-court work, which is a positive sign.

Irving missed the Nets’ first two games against the Boston Celtics while out with his shoulder injury and therefore missed the two revenge games, including one in Boston where the fans still taunted him despite his absence.

Some may accuse Irving of faking the injury, but he wouldn’t be missing this many games if he were well.

Irving, who is in his first season with the Nets, is averaging 28.5 points per game.
