  • The league eyes looking into Kyrie Irving as we know he's gonna miss another game tonight isn't expected back before Saturday.

  • The reviewing videos that air circulating on social media carry without a mask of what appears to be a family birthday party and a potential violation of the league's code protocols.

  • Here is Nets head coach Steve Nash today.

  • That video surfaced.

  • Are you talking directly to him, or is he keeping his distance from the team?

  • You know there's been communication, but I think that's all in house.

  • So we we keep that to ourselves and we try toe to figure out, you know, our our home front privately.

  • So Kyrie, he's gonna miss his fourth straight game tonight against against the Nuggets, all of which are listed officially as personal reasons.

  • The Nets, therefore, and three when Kyrie plays this season, compared Toa one and three without him in a season that was supposed to be our first glimpse in tow, how the Urban Durant duo would fare in Brooklyn.

  • That pair has really barely played together in half of the Nets games so far this season, so not exactly the start that the that's what have wanted.

  • Woe is back as promised, and roads will get to you in just a second.

  • Let's bring in our also reporter, Malika Andrews, who is live at Barclay Center, and Malika on the phone with us, live on SportsCenter.

  • We know we're not gonna see Kyrie for the rest of week, but take us through what happens next.

  • Well, Sage, now the investigation is underway from the league.

  • They're going to be reviewing that video and deciphering whether or not it is a violation of league protocols.

  • He was massless.

  • That's something that the league does not want to see.

  • Remember that players are also barred the season from going to clubs.

  • Going to lounge is attending gatherings with more than 15 people, and so that's what the league is going to be looking into here.

  • And remember, if he is found to have violated the league's health and safety protocols, he could be facing an additional amount of quarantine time.

  • And if he misses games while he is in quarantine, he could also stand to lose 1 81 6th of his salary, which is about 4 10, which is about $410,000 per game.

  • So that's what the league is going toe have to review now.

  • Okay, so it's a wait and see for sure, and we'll obviously you've been following this story as well.

  • What else can you offer us?

  • A.

  • Sfar as the league's perspective as they look into this?

  • Well, you know there's not going to be, Ah, lot of empathy from the league in terms of potential protocol violations.

  • You've seen the way the league tighten those up today.

  • And I think certainly this compounds Kyrie Irving's challenges with the organization.

  • Even it was one thing when he was away.

  • Now, even if Kyrie Irving decided he wanted to come back and play this week or the Nets were ready for him to play again, it is out of their hands.

  • It is in the leaks hands now, and you are unlikely to see Kyrie Irving on the court without a significant quarantine period.

  • If this video, uh, turns out to be, uh, contemporary, uh, for a significant amount of time here and I think is you saw the Nets statement today, think the Nets expectation is Kyrie Irving has to come back and explain to them to his teammates, to the public.

  • You know exactly his reasons for going.

  • And then and then also, uh, you know, the impact that, uh, potentially his decision to be at that party may also have now on the next season.
