KD's hurt ankle, Seven on COVID-19 list, Kyrie teases return, all hell breaking loose in Nets' World

Dec 15, 2021 0 comments
While you were sleeping a whole lot has changed around the Brooklyn Nets. Kevin Durant has a tweaked ankle, James Harden is among seven players in COVID-19 protocol and Kyrie Irving tweeted out a video that hints at a return to the court. Despite dressing eligible players, Brooklyn escaped in overtime by Toronto 131-129 on Tuesday night. Durant led the way with 34 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists while Patty Mills added 30 points. It was arguably the most impressive win of the year for the Nets against a Raptors squad that was winners of four of its last five heading into the contest and with plenty of offensive and defensive firepower. Brooklyn survived one night with rookies Cam Thomas (4), David Duke Jr. (10) and Kessler Edwards (17) contributing in the scoring column and playing meaningful minutes. The attention now turns to how Steve Nash will handle a paper thin roster and when Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge and Bruce Brown will be eligible to return to action. In the immediacy, Nash has his hands full, but a potentially season altering development came when Irving posted yet another cryptic tweet, this time a video of him lacing up sneakers. Speculation has been mounting that Irving could return to the Nets with reports indicating there's increased optimism among Nets players and coaches that may be in the offing. Brooklyn has its hands full right now, but at least there is one encouraging sign coming out of Nets world.
