Brooklyn Nets star guard Kyrie Irving is returning to the team.

Irving opened up about his long absence that drew much concern from people within and outside the organization.

“A lot of family and personal stuff going on,” Irving said. “So just wanna leave it at that.”

Irving also apologized to fans that were unhappy that he wasn’t playing.

The six-time All-Star explained that he is happy to be back after a much-needed “pause.”

Irving has missed the Nets’ past seven games, but the team has been able to succeed in his absence, partly because of the addition of James Harden.

Irving, Harden and Kevin Durant will now share the floor for the first time since the blockbuster deal that brought Harden to Brooklyn.

This season, Irving is averaging 27.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.1 assists per game.
