The Brooklyn Nets will be without Kyrie Irving on Saturday as the highly-touted free agent signing deals with a frustrating injury.

According to ESPN, Kyrie Irving will miss Saturday’s preseason game between the Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Lakers.

The superstar point guard is dealing with a facial contusion that he aggravated after a collision with Rajon Rondo on Thursday. Additionally, Caris LeVert is questionable for the team’s second-straight game against the Lakers.
