Irving, who appeared in just 20 games this season, is expected to be ready for the start of next season — provided he doesn’t have rotator-cuff damage or suffer any major setbacks.

“I’m not going to get into details now, because he’s still evaluating what his options may be over the next couple of days,” general manager Sean Marks said, as relayed by Brian Lewis of the New York Post. “But in terms of he is having surgery, and he will be out for the remainder of the season.”

Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry 'looking great,' wants him to play with Andrew Wiggins this season

  Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry 'looking great,' wants him to play with Andrew Wiggins this season With the Golden State Warriors sporting the NBA’s worst record and staring at a prime lottery pick, there’s little motivation to rush Stephen Curry back to the court. Kerr spoke with reporters after Wednesday’s practice that saw Curry participate with a red no-contact jersey similar to the ones NFL quarterbacks wear. Curry hasn’t played since breaking his left hand on Oct. 30 against the Phoenix Suns. Steph Curry was in a red jersey for practice today. It meant: Don’t touch. Steve Kerr: “We were calling him Tom Brady.” Curry took part in all non-contact parts of practice. Won’t scrimmage this week. Full update here. pic.twitter.

“ He could have a rotator cuff injury which could be just tendinitis and inflammation all the way up to a partial tear. In layman’s terms, Subacromial impingement syndrome is the rotator cuff being compressed against the top of the shoulder blade.

When Irving has missed time this season , Terry Rozier has taken advantage of his increased Boston should be able to put up a fight even with Irving out and may be able to stall long enough for him Even if Kyrie is unable to return this season , or he does but Boston falls in the first round, the

Irving first injured his shoulder against the Pelicans on Nov. 4. He continued playing through the pain for multiple contests, later missing 26 straight games because of the injury. Brooklyn failed to adjust to Irving’s arrival, mostly playing better without him this season.

“Obviously, we feel bad for [Irving],” teammate Caris LeVert said. “He wants to be out here with us. That’s first and foremost. He definitely worked extremely hard to come back. It’s just a series of unfortunate things that happened with him.”

Here are some other notes from the Atlantic Division:

  • Celtics guard Kemba Walker didn’t have a minutes restriction during the 2020 NBA All-Star Game last week, according to Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe (Twitter link). Walker missed Sunday’s contest against the Lakers due to a knee injury, which was made worse by the highly competitive style of play in the All-Star Game.
  • Sharpshooter Joe Harris has expressed his desire to re-sign with the Nets this summer, with the 28-year-old set to become an unrestricted free agent. Brooklyn is expected to enter next season with the likes of Kevin Durant, Irving, LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, Jarrett Allen and others, sporting one of the league’s most talented cores on paper. “Definitely, why wouldn’t you?” Harris said when asked if he hopes to re-sign this summer, according to NetsDaily. “Obviously, those are guys who I’ve gotten close with now that I’ve been with them this past year,” Harris said. “They’re obviously incredible players. You see what they’re able to do when they are healthy and playing. I don’t think there’s anybody in the NBA who wouldn’t want to play with those guys.”
  • Knicks guard Wayne Ellington remembers the late Kobe Bryant as both a friend and a mentor, Steve Popper of Newsday writes. Both Ellington and Bryant played for the Lakers during the 2014-15 season, with Bryant’s competitiveness, drive and passion making a permanent impact on Ellington and many other players  around the association.

Kenny Atkinson's tenure with Nets comes to surprising end, as sources say Kyrie Irving prefers Tyronn Lue to take over .
The clock on Kenny Atkinson’s time with the Brooklyn Nets started ticking the moment Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving arrived on his doorstep, when the franchise turned from afterthought to relevant. The atmosphere Atkinson helped build — one that was apparently so attractive to Durant and Irving — seems like it played a part in his undoing. Whether he was fired or “mutually parting ways”, as the Nets news release states, is immaterial. In a year that was nothing more than groundwork for the future, the meshing of Atkinson’s style with Durant and Irving was on trial.
