Kyrie Irving is back with the Brooklyn Nets.
Irving has spent some serious time away from the team for reasons that aren’t really known, but head coach Steve Nash said he’ll likely suit up Wednesday against the Cavaliers after rejoining practice Tuesday, according to Marc Stein.

Kyrie also took some time Tuesday to address his absence with the media and talked about how people assume how they know what’s happening in his life.
“There’s just so many assumptions about what’s going on, and so many people feel like they know me best. They have no idea who I am.”

For those who might not know, Irving hasn’t played since January 5 when he dropped 29 on the Jazz. Since that game, there’s been a ton of chaos.
Judging from his comments above, it seems like he’s in a good place mentally and ready to roll.

If Irving is ready to roll, then the Nets are going to have a squad with Kevin Durant, Harden and him. We’ll see what happens Wednesday night!
