This would be extremely good news for the Nets’ postseason plans, as their point guard Kyrie Irving missed half the season due to the mandate and was only allowed to play away games. Irving is expected to attend all games after the mandate is lifted, which could help the Nets in the postseason. adams said “I will make difficult decisions. People will disagree with some of them. I have to move the city forward.

The past few months have been tough for the Nets, who have had to adjust to player availability not only because of Irving, but also because of multiple injuries. LaMarcus Aldridge is out with a hip injury and will most likely return the following week. Seth Curry, who was a huge influence on the team’s offense while creating space for top options and leading offense, is now out with a sprained ankle. Joe Harris (ankle surgery) and Ben Simmons (back) will not play again this season.

Although the mandate has been lifted, allowing Irving to play in all games, there are still gaps that most of these players are filling, which would otherwise have increased the Nets’ chances of a deep playoff run. Brain Windhorst commented on the situation, saying: “This means the Nets have gone from being a potential spoiler to a potential contender. Having Kyrie Irving in the lineup this year makes as big a difference as you can imagine.”

According to Windhorst, the Nets are the top three teams in the NBA when Irving is playing, and they are the number one offensive team on the road when the point guard is present. “This is a complete game changer for the Eastern Conference playoffs. Now I’m not going to sit here and tell you they’re the favourites. They’ve been the betting favorite for months. They still have one of the bottom six defenses in the league.”

Vincent Carter further commented on the lack of defense by saying, The big question is defensively, where will they be? We saw them gutted last night. They only gave up easy baskets, the defensive rotation errors are huge. Offensively I think they will be fine but another concern is staying healthy.” On defense, Ben Simmons was brought in with the intention of giving the Nets a defensive boost. Simmons, who is now out for the rest of the season had a 106.1 defense rating, ranking fourth overall in the league. He took second place for the DPOY Award behind Rudy Gobert with 15 votes for first place.
