Kyrie Irving has been in the news for all the wrong reasons this season. The Brooklyn Nets superstar got into trouble after he posted a tweet promoting a film portraying anti-Semitic sentiments, and when given multiple chances by the media to apologize or address his mistake – Irving kept his stance and hence was suspended by the Nets for five games without pay.

It all started when Irving posted the Amazon page for “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America” – a 2018 film that heavily showcases anti-Semitic tropes and ideologies. The tweet meant Irving received plenty of backlashes. However, Kyrie did not apologize or hold himself accountable for his actions even when repeatedly given chances by the media to do so. Kyrie’s inability to do so forced the Nets to suspend the star – however, it turned out that Kyrie was given a few terms to follow if he wants to make his NBA return.

The terms required Kyrie to apologize, condemn the film and donate $500,000 to any cause or organization that fights racial bias and hatred – before meeting with Joe Tsai to address his understanding. However, it turns out that Irving might not return to the Nets even after serving his suspension.

Why might Kyrie Irving not return to the Nets after serving his suspension?

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Kyrie returning to action for the Nets after serving his suspension might be “a complicated process.”

The Nets are currently on a road trip to the West, as they are set to face the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday after they beat the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. Speaking on the latest episode of NBA Countdown, the NBA Insider does not feel like Irving will be able to join the team at the Crypto.com Arena.

“It is a complicated process, it’s not as simple as simply checking off boxes of what’s necessary for him to return. It will take some real initiative on Kyrie’s part to show that it will be a right time to bring Irving back to action, but it will certainly not be before the 20th of November – the following Sunday against Memphis. I think it’s unlikely we’re gonna see him before that.”
