Kyrie Irving refuses to answer question on vaccination status.

Brooklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving refuses question on his covid-19 vaccination status as he didn’t show up for media day interviews on Monday at Barclays Centre.

Irving, who speak to reporters via a Zoom session, but he deflected a bevy of questions about his COVID-19 vaccination status and whether he expects to comply with a New York City mandate.

The mandate will see all people over the age of 12 must be vaccinated to enter a covered premises unless they have a medical or religious exemption. That means every home team player must be vaccinated to play games in New York.

When asked about his vaccination status Irving said, “I appreciate your question, but honestly, I like to keep that stuff private.

“I’m a human being first and obviously living in this public sphere, there’s just a lot of questions about what’s going on in the world of Kyrie and I just would love to just keep that private and handle it the right way with my team and go forward together with a plan.

“Obviously, I’m not able to be there today, but that doesn’t mean I’m putting any limits on the future of me being able to join the team.

“So if we can keep that private, anybody that has any further questions about that, it will be the same response.”
