It remains unclear whether Irving’s potential return this season would come via vaccination to meet New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement or by Brooklyn opening the door for him to play road games and practice at home, but sources have indicated a renewed belief that Irving could play this season after all. Nets players and coaches want to have Irving rejoin the team as soon as possible. – via Shams Charania @ The Athletic

The Nets, led by team governor Joe Tsai, have been adamant about Irving being fully committed to the team for all games and not participating as a part-time player. The Nets announced on Oct. 12 that Irving would sit out all team activities until he fulfills the city’s vaccine requirements. Nonetheless, Irving has stated publicly and privately his desire is to play and return to the floor. – via Shams Charania @ The Athletic
