Kyrie Irving will miss the Brooklyn Nets’ preseason game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday after aggravating a facial fracture.
Irving was injured in the opening minute of the Nets’ preseason game against the Lakers on Thursday. The two games are part of a back-to-back series played in China.
Irving initially suffered the fracture after getting elbowed in a pickup game last month.
Caris LeVert, who also left the game on Thursday with an injury, is listed as questionable after getting poked in the eye.
