NEW YORK (AP) — Kyrie Irving won’t play for the Brooklyn Nets until he can play in all their games. The Nets announced Tuesday that Irving would not play or practice with them until he could be a full participant, ending the idea that he would play in only road games.

Without mentioning his vaccination status, general manager Sean Marks said Irving has made a decision that keeps him from being a full member of the team.
