Kyrie Irving is nearing the completion of the process to be reinstated in the Brooklyn Nets lineup. He could be ready to play for Sunday’s match against the Memphis Grizzlies.
Kyrie Irving could return on Sunday
Irving missed seven of his last seven games following his suspension by the Nets for sharing a link to an antisemitic documentary film on social media. He then failed to make an apology to Jews despite multiple opportunities.
“Kyrie continues his journey of education and dialogue,” Tamika Tremaglio, executive director at NBPA, told ESPN Wednesday night. He has struggled with the full impact of his voice, actions, and words, especially in the Jewish community. Kyrie is against antisemitism and is committed to improving his understanding and self-improvement. He plans to continue on this journey to ensure his pursuit of truth, knowledge, and righteousness.
The team stated that Irving was not fit to be associated with the Nets. They gave him a list of conditions to fulfill before he would be reinstated. These are the requirements:
* Irving should apologize for linking to an antisemitic documentary. He must also condemn the film.
* Irving should donate $500,000 to anti-hate causes.
* Irving should receive sensitivity training.
* Irving should take antisemitism training.
* Irving should meet with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Jewish leaders.
* Irving needs to meet with Joseph Tsai, Nets owner, to show his understanding of the issues.
The Nets suspended Irving; they are now 4-3, 5.5 games behind Boston in the Eastern Conference standings.
