This injury may take up to 5-6 weeks to recover, depending upon the intensity of the strain. The Nets gave a medical update about Irving, which included that Irving was to go for a reevaluation in one week’s time.

Such an operation could sideline him for 3-4 months, effectively ending his 2019-20 season.
