The most struggling team due to Covid Cases in the NBA league is Brooklyn Nets, the team has to send its star players James Harden and Bruce Brown into quarantine due to Covid safety protocols, this has put the pressure on offense on Kevin Durant shoulder.
Brooklyn Nets are already short-handed and don’t have enough healthy players to put full team for league matches. Then they decided to bring back Kyrie Irving on the court and also announced that they will let him play the remaining road games. The franchise has taken a complete U-turn on what they have said during the beginning of the season.
Kyrie Irving cleared his stance that he will not take the Covid-19 vaccine earlier this season, so he was not allowed to play in NBA games due to New York state law which was passed during the start of the league matches, the laws states that “if you want to watch basketball in the arena with 10,000 people you have to show your vaccination proof.” This law kept Kyrie Irving away from the Brooklyn Nets games. Later, the franchise has decided to bring him back only for road games in the league
