    More On: brooklyn nets Knicks’ recipe for another lost lead was twofold Concerning Knicks trend exposed once again Nets saddened by James Harden injury setback: ‘It sucks’ Knicks star shades Net after another blown chance Hello, Kevin Durant. Goodbye, James Harden. One superstar is set to rejoin the Nets just as another is headed to an extended injury absence. Really, what could be more fitting of this disjointed season? Durant, who has missed the past 23 games with a left hamstring strain, is “probable” to play alongside Kyrie Irving on Wednesday against the Pelicans. But the Big Three won’t be whole for at least another week because Harden is sidelined with a right hamstring strain revealed Tuesday by an MRI exam. He will continue to rehab and be re-evaluated in about 10 days, according to the team. The Nets have preached, “There’s still time” for the full team to...
    With James Harden set to miss at least a week with a hamstring injury, the pressure is on for point guard Kyrie Irving to keep the ship afloat.  The injury woes have certainly caused plenty of headaches for the Brooklyn Nets. First, Kevin Durant suffered a hamstring injury, and the sharpshooter has missed around two months of action. It was announced on Tuesday that James Harden is also banged up. Harden, who arrived from Houston early in the season, is set to be re-evaluated in 10 days. While Durant should return to the lineup this week (we hope), this all only adds pressure on point guard Kyrie Irving to keep the team operating at a high level without a fully-healthy lineup. James Harden underwent an MRI today that revealed a right hamstring strain, the Nets say. He will be re evaluated in ten days. — Malika Andrews (@malika_andrews) April 6,...

    Kevin Durant showed incredible resilience making his comeback this year. The Nets superstar suffered a dangerous Achilles tear during the 2019 NBA Finals. He went on to recover over the next year and made his return this season. Durant looked like his old self and shrugged away any concerns about his health. But his latest injury has sidelined him for some time. Kevin Durant on the road to recovery Initially, Kevin Durant was only supposed to be out for a few games. But after the player was ruled out with a hamstring strain, further scans revealed that there was significant internal bleeding. Durant was sidelined indefinitely, and he missed the NBA All-Star game, despite being an All-Star captain. But it appears Durant could be back sooner rather than later. NBA insider Shams Charania revealed earlier this week that Durant will be out for another two weeks. However, he is making...

Irving was ruled out around 2:30 p.m. with right groin soreness. It’s not an issue that had been known to be troubling the star guard, who poured in a game-high 34 points in Monday’s win over the rival Knicks and logged 36:47, second-most on the team. For the most part, Irving has avoided the injury bug that has dogged him for much of his career. He missed seven consecutive games earlier this season, but that was for a personal leave and...
    Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden have been named to a staggering 27 combined NBA All-Star Games. But when this year’s event tips off Sunday in Atlanta (8 p.m., TNT), not one of the Nets’ Big 3 will be taking it for granted. For the superstar trio, being All-Stars may be old hat, but it never gets old. “For the All-Star Game, that’s always a blessing,” Harden said. “That means you’re doing something right. That means you’re playing extremely well up to that point. You never want to take opportunities like that for granted. So I’m blessed. I’m fortunate to be a part of my ninth All-Star Game.” Playing well might be an understatement. Harden leads the league in assists through the first half of the season and has thrust himself into the MVP conversation. His string of nine straight All-Star berths — dating to 2013 — is the...

Even at half-strength. Last game aside. The Nets lead the NBA in field-goal percentage, swishing at a 49.9 percent clip that would require missing their next 63 consecutive shots beginning Monday against the Spurs to be overtaken at the top by the No. 2-ranked Bucks. Is it a product of pure talent? Chemistry? Open looks? “I think it’s a mixture of all those things,” center DeAndre Jordan said. “Obviously our defense is a big component to that, us getting out early and getting easy fast-break transition points.” Jordan is an expert on...

    Nets fans who recall Kyrie Irving’s right shoulder limiting him to just 20 games last season naturally began to worry when he missed Saturday’s game due to what the team called “injury recovery” for the same shoulder. But coach Steve Nash insisted it was more precaution than relapse, and the Nets were just being careful. Nash said Irving’s absence should be much shorter than that of Kevin Durant, who is out at least through the All-Star break with a hamstring strain. Irving is expected to return during the road trip that will close the first half of the season, either Monday in San Antonio or Wednesday in Houston. “I don’t think it’s serious; I think it’s maintenance,” Nash said before the Nets hosted the Mavericks on Saturday night. “He knows his body, he’s discussed it with us. He has history with that shoulder, and he’s taking the necessary precautions to...

The two-time NBA Champion suffered a strained left hamstring last Saturday Night against his former team the Golden State Warriors.

    Kyrie Irving returned from his one-game absence wearing tape on his injured right index finger. He was effective — but hardly efficient and nowhere near pain-free. “It sucks, man,” Irving said of the injury after Tuesday’s 122-111 loss in Detroit. “Just shooting very well on the season, want to continue. So, you just have different hiccups that happen, especially on my shooting hand. “It’s uncomfortable, but at the same time I don’t want to make any excuses. I’m out there, put myself out there, do a lot of treatment on it and we’re down a few players obviously, as well, so you just want to go out there and compete and worry about the pain later. But doing the best I can.” Irving, who injured the finger in Friday’s loss to the Raptors and sat out Saturday’s defeat in Philadelphia, had 27 points and seven assists. But he was visibly...

    Kyrie Irving was back on the shelf Saturday night, but the Nets hope it’s only a one-game absence. The star point guard missed the Nets’ 124-108 loss to the 76ers at Wells Fargo Center because of a sprained right index finger that he suffered in Friday’s loss to the Raptors. “I think to be determined [how long he’s out], but I think it very well could be day-to-day,” coach Steve Nash said before tipoff. “I think we’re thinking of it day-to-day right now, but you never know. We’ll see how it responds. Hopefully it is day-to-day and we’ll see him back in action on Tuesday.” Irving played 35 minutes Friday, recording 15 points, five rebounds, five assists and seven turnovers. He shot 6-for-12 from the field, but 0-for-4 from deep. Nash said Irving’s absence had nothing to do with load management as the Nets face back-to-back starting Tuesday. Instead, it...
    Getty Kyrie Irving and Spencer Dinwiddie dap each other up during a matchup against the Detroit Pistons. A case can be made that Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving, is perhaps a top-five point guard in the NBA. In this incredibly young season, Irving is averaging 26 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game. Even with all Irving’s talent, Brooklyn’s starting point guard is starting to feel the effects of a gaping hole that has been left in the team’s roster. Nets Are Already Feeling Dinwiddie’s Absence Last week, the Nets announced that their starting shooting guard Spencer Dinwiddie would be out for the rest of the season with a partially torn ACL. The team knew that the loss of one of their rising stars would make their chase for the franchise’s first NBA title that much more difficult. After two games without the services of Brooklyn’s...
    NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets are resting Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving against Memphis on the second night of their first back-to-back of the season. The Nets announced that Durant would be out early Monday. Irving wasn’t added to the injury report until a few hours later. Both players are coming off lengthy injury absences. Durant missed the entire 2019-20 season while rehabbing from right Achilles tendon surgery, while Irving was limited to 20 games because of a right shoulder injury. Coach Steve Nash said the decision to rest Durant was made Sunday night after the Nets lost in Charlotte, their first defeat after two victories to open the season. Their absence leaves the Nets without three starters after guard Spencer Dinwiddie partially tore the ACL in his right knee in the third quarter of the game in Charlotte. Nash did not announce who would start...
    Those tuning into NBA TV on Monday night to watch the Nets’ new star duo of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving will be sorely disappointed. Both are out against the Grizzlies. Both Durant and Irving played Sunday night, when the Nets (2-1) were upset by the Hornets. Neither will suit up for the tail end of Brooklyn’s first back-to-back set of the season against Memphis (0-2). The reason given for both absences is “injury recovery.” Durant didn’t play in 2019-20 following a torn Achilles, while Irving missed the end of the 2019-20 season with a shoulder injury. These absences come in some contrast to the NBA’s new load management rules for the 2020-21 season. Those rules state that healthy players aren’t supposed to be rested for national television games, which broadcasts on NBA TV are considered to be. That new rule does allow for “unusual circumstances,” of which injury history is...

They lost starter Spencer Dinwiddie. And their air of invulnerability, too. Brooklyn got upset 106-104 at rebuilding Charlotte on Sunday night, in a game that saw Dinwiddie suffer a right knee strain and not return. The Nets came out flat, fell behind by 16 and rallied, but it was too little, too late. After opening the season with a blowout win over Kevin Durant’s old Golden State team, and an even more impressive laugher in Kyrie Irving’s return to Boston, the Nets couldn’t build on that momentum. While rookie coach Steve Nash said beforehand they hadn’t had a bad practice, they...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors were trying to extend their stay atop the NBA when he crumbled to the court with a ruptured Achilles tendon on June 10, 2019. The two-time NBA Finals MVP was lost and so soon was the Warriors’ grasp on the championship. Golden State’s title was gone a couple nights later and eventually so was Durant, who left for Brooklyn as a free agent after having surgery. Now both are ready to start working their way back. ????

    After weeks of boycotting the media and calling them pawns — getting fined in the process — Kyrie Irving finally spoke to the press on Monday. And in a wide-ranging interview, he talked about finally playing alongside Kevin Durant, the disappointment of his injury woes and even his relationship with the press. Sunday’s preseason opener marked Irving’s first action since Feb. 1 due to shoulder surgery. The Nets guard looked stellar with a team-high 18 points and four assists in just 17 minutes, but declined postgame interview requests. When asked why Monday by The Post, he in essence implied he wanted a safe space. “The focus is on what’s going on in here, my job,” Irving said. “And I wanted to make sure that that was clear: No distractions, nothing about dispelling anything, nothing about going back-and-forth, nor about calling out one person or another, not even to refer to...
