Brooklyn Nets to be without Kyrie Irving for Game 5 against Milwaukee Bucks

Nets star Kyrie Irving will miss Game 5 against the Bucks on Tuesday with a sprained right ankle, coach Steve Nash told reporters Monday.

Irving, hurt in Game 4 on Sunday, had an MRI that showed the sprain.

Nash added that he has "no idea" whether Irving will be able to return in this series vs. Milwaukee, which is tied at 2 as it heads back to Brooklyn.

Irving made a layup midway through the second quarter Sunday and came down and landed on Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo's foot. Irving's right foot bent significantly, and he immediately was in significant pain, staying on the floor for several minutes.
