Kyrie Irving Suffers ‘Left Side Facial Fracture’ In Nets Offseason Workout


Kyrie Irving is preparing for his first training camp in Brooklyn, but the Nets’ newest point guard isn’t off to a great start.

Irving was diagnosed with a “left side facial fracture” Wednesday after sustaining the injury during Tuesday’s workouts, the team announced. He is listed as day-to-day.

Irving has been working out at the Nets’ facilities for quite some time now, leading general manager Sean Marks to note the All-Star has been “religious” about his offseason workouts.

Brooklyn opens training camp on Saturday before it heads to China to participate in the NBA’s China Games for two preseason contests.
