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.
