Kyrie Irving goes down in the Nets for decisive game against Bucks

Kyrie Irving, one of the Brooklyn Nets’ three superstars, will also miss the decisive seventh game of the NBA Eastern Conference semifinals against the Milwaukee Bucks through injury, the franchise reported Friday.
Coach Steve Nash confirmed that Irving, who sprained his right ankle in Game 4 of the series, will not be ready for Game 7 on Saturday but did not rule out his return later if they advance to the conference final.
“If we can move forward, he will be back at some point,” Nash said. “I do not know if it will be a few days or a week or more, but it is not a situation that threatens the season.”
On Thursday, the Nets lost their first chance to qualify for the Eastern Conference final when they fell 104-89 to the Milwauke Bucks, who tied the series 3-3.
The Nets will have a second and final option on Saturday against their fans at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
Irving’s injury, averaging 20 points and 4.3 assists against Milwaukee, turned the tie upside down, leaving the hitherto favorites Nets with only one of their superstars in good physical condition, Kevin Durant.
The other figure, James Harden, had to urgently return to the team in Game 5 despite hamstring problems affecting his mobility. (AFP)
