Kyrie Irving out indefinitely after reaggravating shoulder injury

Kyrie Irving Nets

Kyrie Irving is out indefinitely after reaggravating his shoulder injury.

Brooklyn Nets coach Kenny Atkinson confirmed the news on Tuesday. Irving is set to see a specialist this week, ESPN’s Malika Andrews reports. Atkinson also wouldn’t say whether Irving might be out the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old guard has already missed 26 games earlier this season due to his shoulder injury, which caused him to miss more time than expected. He did not practice on Tuesday and is out for Thursday’s game.

Irving has averaged 27.4 points per game in the 20 contests in which he has played.

Brooklyn’s two big additions this offseason were Irving and Kevin Durant, and they may end up going the entire first season with 20 games played between the two of them (Durant’s season-long absence was expected, of course).
