Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving has still not received a COVID-19 vaccine, and the team is starting to lose hope that he will do so prior to the start of the season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst of ESPN

New York City’s COVID-19 regulations state that unvaccinated persons are not allowed to attend large gatherings, which means Irving is currently barred from participating in practices or attending home games at Barclays Center. The team moved training camp to San Diego, in part so that Irving could take part, but they are not planning to relocate for practices during the season. Irving was not with the team at their training facility in Brooklyn on Tuesday.

At this point the organization has not made any decisions on how they will or will not accommodate Irving as a potential part-time player, per Wojnarowski and Windhorst. Per the NBA‘s current rules, Irving would be allowed to play when the Nets are on the road.
