In what could be considered as a rather shocking turn of events, it is now being reported that Kyrie Irving is taking the necessary steps to make his season debut for the Brooklyn Nets. A target date has not yet been set, but it is abundantly clear that the All-Star point guard is going to be rejoining his team in the near future.

This report comes from NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Woj also reports that the Nets star continues to refuse to adhere to New York's vaccine mandates which is the reason why he won't be able to play in home games at the Barclays Center:

This is obviously a huge development not only for the Nets but for the NBA in general. Irving has been a truly noteworthy absence this season because of his stance against the vaccine. The Nets earlier decided to send Irving into exile amid his anti-vax stance. However, with how dire the situation is right now, Brooklyn has decided to call up their star point guard which in more ways than one, is a development that could be considered as a major win for Kyrie.

On Thursday, Kevin Durant led an extremely shorthanded Nets side to an impressive 114-105 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Brooklyn had no less than seven players in the league's health and safety protocols including James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Paul Millsap. Needless to say, the Nets are in dire need of some warm bodies right now, and they have decided to turn to Kyrie Irving in this respect.
