or should they be expected to show up for work even when they cannot play?

The guys paying Irving's salary seemed fine with him not showing up.

His job right now is to get healthy so he can contribute next year. Im a little dissapointed he didnt find a way to get to the game last night to support his teammates, but I don't think this is something worth making a big deal over. His teammates seem to love him and surgery seems like a reasonable enough excuse to me.

They're paid to fulfill their contractual obligations. Being a cheerleader isn't one of those obligations. It's not like having Kyrie on the sidelines would have stopped Rozier from missing all his threes or LeBron from wrecking worlds.
