Kyrie Irving has yet to receive a vaccination for COVID-19, multiple sources tell Yaron Weitzman of FoxSports.
The NBA, according to a league spokesman, believes that around 85% of its players are currently vaccinated; National Basketball Players Association Executive Director Michele Roberts put the number at 90% during a July interview with Yahoo Sports. Those numbers are about 10-to-15% more than the overall rate of American adults who are vaccinated.
Rules in New York City and San Francisco would prohibit members of the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors from playing or practicing in their home arenas "without providing proof of at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccination unless they have an approved medical or religious exemption."
Sean Marks didn't mention Irving by name when he mentioned the Nets had multiple players who were not yet vaccinated.
"Regarding if they could play today, I can't comment on who could play and so forth. There would obviously be a couple people missing from that picture," Marks said. "I won't get into who it is, but we feel confident in the following several days before camp everybody would be allowed to participate and so forth."
