Nets fans deserve this haha

Irving missed his 10th straight game Wednesday with what the Nets termed a shoulder impingement. He also has already been ruled out for Friday night’s game in Charlotte


 Dr. Andrew S. Rokito, chief of shoulder surgery at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital: “Impingement typically does not refer to an acute injury. [It] refers to more of a long-standing, chronic issue with the rotator cuff.

“He could have a rotator cuff injury which could be just tendinitis and inflammation all the way up to a partial tear. It’s unlikely a full tear. … In terms of time off, I can’t answer that question. It’s certainly conceivable if he really hurt his shoulder with an injury to the rotator cuff he may need few weeks.”

In layman’s terms, Subacromial impingement syndrome is the rotator cuff being compressed against the top of the shoulder blade. It’s a wear-and-tear issue that usually shows up in older athletes, worrisome since Irving is just 27 — and in the first season of a four-year deal.

“The diagnosis of impingement — and I’m not here to refute that in any way — is something someone have long-standing chronic rotator cuff pain, related to rotator cuff issue,” Dr. Rokito said, speaking in general terms about the diagnosis.

“It’s typically not an acute problem. Impingement is a long-standing chronic issue. It’s not a diagnosis one typically associates with an acute injury, and it’s not one typically associated with younger athletes in their 20s; it’s usually older, starting in the 40s, late 30s.”

Irving hasn’t talked to the press since Nov. 14 in Denver, so it’s unclear if he’s had an MRI exam, or a more accurate MRI arthrogram

After realizing he wasn't going to win much leading the Nets alone, he's sitting out this season to play with KD next season.

This is just my opinion/theory.

I sounds very possible in today's NBA.

I cannot feel happy though for the misfortune of a fanbase when it is caused but an injury to a a player.

Sometimes the best resignings are the ones you don't make.

Soon as they got off to that crap start I was thinking only matter of time before he has something to sit season out with.

He'll be great with KD because Kyrie is definitely a sidekick whether he agrees or not.
I love basketball I love the Celtics I Hate August and October

This. The Nets are playing better without him.

you could be right on both accounts


and just like what happened at Boston ,  he is gone for so long , when he returns ,  the team chemistry is broke.   Everybody will defer to him and the chemistry is down the tubes.    It will be the same with KD, anything the team builds will be shot down , and replaced with a two,man ball game of Kyrie and KD .

I was always worried more about his injury history than his leadership/fit. Turned out I should have been on red alert on both counts!

I've had rotator cuff surgery and no way in hell is it "chronic".  Its a simple operation and fixes you up for life.  I'm no bb player but I think I was 100% in a matter of a few weeks.

good for nets?

they are now at 12 wins and 10 loses. 9-3 without kyrie in the lineup, and 3-7 with him.   ;D
