Kyrie Irving out for season with shoulder surgery

Kyrie Irving Nets

Kyrie Irving’s season has already come to an end.

Irving will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder injury that caused him to miss 26 games earlier this season. The surgery will cause him to miss the final two months of the season.

When Irving initially returned from his shoulder injury, he received a cortisone injection rather than undergo surgery. But this time he will have the procedure. Brooklyn Nets GM Sean Marks says the team is thinking long-term with Irving’s health.

Irving averaged 27.4 points per game 20 games this season. He also missed time with a knee injury.

This is a rough year for the Nets, who spent big money over the offseason signing Irving and Kevin Durant. They’ll end up having paid $69 million to the two of them and getting just 20 games played in return. Wonder what Kendrick Perkins has to say now?
