Speaking on ESPN's NBA Today, insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Brooklyn Nets remain optimistic that Kyrie Irving will play in home games this season. This optimism is held by members for the front office, players, coaches and even Irving himself.

“I think around the Nets there’s still a confidence, maybe even more than an optimism that they’re going to get Kyrie Irving on a full-time basis at some point,” Wojnarowski said.

As it stands today, Irving is only eligible to play in five of the Nets final 16 games. Brooklyn is home for 10 of their final 16 games, plus has a road game at the New York Knicks.
