Kyrie Irving missed 53 games during the 2021-22 NBA season after refusing to get vaccinated. At first, Irving was not allowed to take part in practice or games for the Nets Organization. Following injuries and the heavy load placed on James Harden and Kevin Durant, the Nets allowed Irving to play part time.

This meant that Irving could play away games as long as they weren’t in New York or Toronto. New York lifted its strict vaccination policies close to the end of the season and allowed Irving to play home games. Irving playing in a part-time capacity did not help the Nets much.

The Nets ended up finishing as the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference and found themselves in the Play-In tournament. They made it past the Play-In Tournament but were swept in the first round of the playoffs by the Boston Celtics. Irving is set to miss more games this season because of his Anti-Semitic remarks.
