Nets’ Irving suffers facial fracture in pickup game

Brooklyn Nets star point guard Kyrie Irving suffered a left-side facial fracture after being elbowed in the face during a workout at the team’s practice facility, the team announced Wednesday.

Brooklyn sent Irving to the hospital for further evaluation Tuesday after he was injured during a pickup game. League sources told the New York Daily News that Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson accompanied him to the hospital following the injury.

The Nets signed Irving in July after two seasons with the Boston Celtics.

He had to wear a protective mask during games to protect a previous facial fracture, including early in the 2017-18 campaign after he was elbowed by former teammate Aron Baynes.

The good news for the Nets is that the injury doesn’t seem too serious, and Irving shouldn’t miss any significant period of time. Still, you never want your best player dealing with a broken face a few days before training camp is about to begin. That’s not a good way to get the season started.

However, even if Irving has to miss a few days of practice, the signing is already paying dividends for the team. During a press conference on Tuesday, which was already scheduled before the incident, Nets GM Sean Marks praised Irving’s professionalism and commitment to the team, saying the “leadership, the work ethic and the competitive nature that he has brought to the group has been terrific.”

The Nets will start training camp on Sept. 28, a few days earlier than most teams due to their preseason trip to China. They’ll be playing two preseason games against the Los Angeles Lakers in Shanghai and Shenzhen on Oct. 10 and 12. Assuming no further complications, Irving should be ready to go for those contests.

The Boston Celtics (18-15) take on the (10-23) Brooklyn Nets tonight  in the second game of a home and home series between the two teams.

The Celtics had won four of five before Saturday’s 100-97 home loss to the Nets. Isaiah Thomas led the team with 24 points and six assists, Jae Crowder added 16 points while Evan Turner had 12 off the bench, but the undersized Celtics simply had no answer for the Net’s Brook Lopez who poured in 30 points on 11 of 24 shooting. Coming off a disappointing loss to the struggling Lakers, the Celtics really wanted to bounce back and get back into the winner’s circle but the second straight loss drops them to 18-15 on the season and 9-9 at home.

Unfortunately, Jarrett Jack’s knee gave out on him during the win and while it was orginally called just a sprain, further analysis has confirmed that he tore his right ACL meaning he will miss the remainder of the season.

The Southeast Division meets the Atlantic Division in this clash as the Atlanta Hawks travel to the Barclays Center to face the Brooklyn Nets in the National Basketball Association.

To be played on November 17, 2015, the match is on 7:30 PM ET.

Thee Atlanta Hawks are going to be minus a couple of key players for Tuesday’s clash in Brooklyn with the Nets. After suffering an injury against the Utah JazzKent Bazemore joins Jeff Teague on a list of injured Hawks.

From College Football, Casino Betting, Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling option.

The Hawks announced Bazemore’s status Monday afternoon, ruling him out of Tuesday’s contest:

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Kent Bazemore suffered a right ankle injury in last night’s game against the Utah Jazz. X-rays performed at Philips Arena last night were negative. A follow-up MRI and examination this afternoon at the Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic confirmed a right ankle sprain. Bazemore will be listed as out (NWT) for tomorrow’s game at Brooklyn and his status will be updated as appropriate.

With Jeff Teague out, a game that might have otherwise been an easy win for the Hawks is now much more of a challenge.

The Hawks started the season as the hottest team in the Eastern Conference, but since winning seven straight they’ve lost three of their last four and their last two overall. Paul Millsap scored a game-high 28 points while Kent Bazemore and Al Horford chipped in with 16 points each but the Hawks missed on the game-winner when Millsap’s last-second 3-pointer hit the rim, dropping the Hawks to 8-4 on the season. Dennis Schroder scored 11 points and nine assists in a rare start as Jeff Teague sat out with a sore left ankle.
