Controversial Guard Kyrie Irving of the Brooklyn Nets will miss Saturday’s game against the Washington Wizards due to right calf pain, the team confirmed, one day after he made a trade request. If you want to be an online bookie, you need to stay on top of this because injury aside, Irving will be a good asset to whoever he will transfer to.
This was surprising to many, even to his teammates. But after failing to reach an agreement on a long-term contract extension, Irving informed the Nets on Friday that he wanted to leave Brooklyn ahead of the trade deadline on Thursday. Irving hopes to transfer, but he has not mentioned where he wants to go to. And any pay per head bookie will now be taking in wagers on where he will end up with.
Where Will Kyrie Irving Go?
Even with his injury, Irving was not initially listed on the first injury report Friday, but as the drama and mystery surrounding his future in Brooklyn intensify ahead of next week’s trade deadline, he will now miss his third game this season due to injury. Your sportsbook pay per head will account for lineup changes, but your wagers may move, so keep an eye out for that.
Speaking of injuries, Ben Simmons, a big man for the Nets, will miss his fourth straight game on Saturday due to left knee pain. Simmons completed an individual exercise on Friday, according to Vaughn. He is scheduled to work out again on Saturday. However, it is still unknown when Simmons will be able to return to the floor. The Dallas Mavericks are anticipated to do so shortly after the Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix Suns are already interested in talking about Kyrie Irving and possibly getting him.
