The Brooklyn Nets will let Kyrie Irving return to action, despite previously saying he could not do so until he had been vaccinated against Covid-19.
Irving has refused to be vaccinated but the Nets now say he can take part in “games and practices in which he is eligible”.
The 29-year-old will not be able play in home games because rules in New York require players to be vaccinated.
Irving will also have to miss away games where you need to be immunised.
Nets general manager Sean Marks said the decision was made “after discussions with coaches, players and staff”.
