Steve Nash said Keri Irving had no concussion. He said he had an x-ray that was “inconclusive” – meaning, “they need more examination, I don’t know if this is the swelling or what.” Nash said Irving would have another checkup in the morning. – Malika Andrews (@malika_andrews) May 12, 2021 Needless to say, the Nets will closely monitor their status with the qualifiers which have come close to the NBA. The Nets have been without various “Big 3” parts throughout the season: Kevin Durant has lost time due to hip and hamstring injuries, while James Harden has not played since April 5 since suffering a hamstring strain. Irving himself missed 17 games this season, and despite his injuries, Brooklyn has a record of 45-24, which is the second best player in the Eastern District. As long as they return to Durant, Hardin and Irving in time in the playoffs, they will have a chance to push towards the NBA Finals.
