Boston attempt to get out of a rut by holding a players-only meeting and there’s a chance that Kyrie Irving suits up for Brooklyn early next year.

Making Headlines

The Boston Celtics held a heated players-only meeting on Wednesday ahead of their game in Orlando. The meeting came after the Celtics suffered a meltdown against the Bulls on Monday where they were outscored 39-11 in the fourth quarter. It appears the meeting helped, with the Celtics beating the Magic to snap a three game losing streak. The real test however will come tonight when Boston face Eastern Conference leaders Miami.

There’s hope in Brooklyn that Kyrie Irving might return to the fold by January. New York’s new mayor Eric Adams who takes office in January is considering lifting the city’s current Covid mandates. Nets head coach Steve Nash confirmed that he would welcome Kyrie back if the vaccination policies were amended.

Over in Philadelphia, Doc Rivers has revealed that Tobias Harris is “doing okay, but not great”. Harris who is vaccinated against Covid-19, entered the NBA’s health and safety protocol earlier in the week. The forward is expected to miss at least seven games for the Sixers.
