The anticipation is starting to build, as there is a chance that Kyrie Irving might feature for the Brooklyn Nets this season. The All-Star guard has been away from the team since the preseason due to his unwillingness to take the covid-19 vaccine.

Based on recent reports, there is "renewed optimism" surrounding Irving's return to the team. Although there has been no statement from the team or on how they will pull it off, fans have been excited at the thought of seeing Uncle Drew suit up for the Nets this season.

Kyrie has reportedly indicated interest to take the covid-19 vaccine but is insisting on the plant-based version. With that, he will be cleared to play for the Nets moving forward, but nothing concrete has developed on that front.
