Update (Jan. 30):
Irving played all 38 minutes of Thursday’s 130-122 loss to the Pistons and contributed 40 points (14-27 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 6-7 FT), five rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and two steals.
On Thursday, Irving did everything he could to help the Nets win, scoring 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting in the first half and another 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting in the second and third quarters.
He scored 40 points to lead all scorers, but it wasn’t enough as Detroit pulled off the road upset. In addition to his six dimes, five boards, two blocks, and two steals, Irving proved once again why he is such a valuable fantasy point guard. When the Nets take on the Knicks this Saturday, he’ll try to make it six straight games scoring at least 30 points.
Update (Jan. 26):
Since Kyrie Irving returned to the lineup last Tuesday after missing the previous game with a calf injury, he has been playing at an MVP level.

After struggling with his shot earlier in the campaign, Irving is now sitting on a 48.5 percent mark from the field for the season, right in line with his career rate.

Kyrie Irving is not listed as injured for Monday’s game.
Irving missed Saturday’s game against the Pacers due to left adductor tightness, but he will play again on Monday.
