While Kyrie Irving has expressed a desire to return to play, he will not play in the Brooklyn Nets' game on Saturday against the Orlando Magic.

For the first five games of his absence, Irving was listed as out due to personal reasons. Saturday's absence is unrelated, and he is listed as out as a part of the league's health and safety protocols.

The league fined Irving $50,000 and announced he would forfeit his salary for the two games he missed during his five-day quarantine.
