The Nets have listed both Kyrie Irving and LaMarcus Aldridge out for Monday’s game against the Timberwolves, leaving only Kevin Durant of the “Big Three” available and he’s likely to be on a minutes restriction.
Irving will miss Monday’s contest due to a “personal absence which is family related” according to the team. The Nets guard has missed a total of 10 games this season due to two personal absences prior to Sunday’s news. The length of his latest personal absence was not undisclosed. Nor was there any detail related to the family matters.
Prior to the news, Irving posted two angry tweets.
