Brooklyn Nets suspend Kyrie Irving for a minimum of 5 games
Here's the full Brooklyn Nets press release announcing their suspension of Kyrie Irving:
Brooklyn Nets announce they are suspending Kyrie Irving for a minimum of five games.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) November 3, 2022
"We are of the view that [Irving] is currently unfit to be associated with the Brooklyn Nets."
The Nets want Irving to make changes over the next week or so and if he refuses, who knows how long the suspension will last? But with a lengthy suspension, so comes the potential that the NBPA, where Irving comically is a VP, would file a grievance on Irving's behalf to recoup lost earnings.

If the Nets do in fact hire Ime Udoka as expected, not having Kyrie Irving around in the beginning likely benefits Udoka as he tries to instill a new culture there.
