NEW YORK — Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving will miss Saturday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks for what the team has said is “right shoulder injury recovery.”

The Nets were already without Kevin Durant, who has been ruled out through the All-Star break as he rehabs a hamstring strain.

Irving had surgery on his right shoulder last March to relieve an impingement. Prior to getting surgery, Irving had gotten a cortisone shot in December 2019.

Saturday will be the 11th game missed this season by Irving, who was out for an extended personal absence in January. He is averaging 27.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game this season.

Brooklyn enters Saturday’s matchup against the Mavericks (ABC, 8:30 p.m. ET) on an eight-game winning streak.
