Kyrie Irving could soon be available for home games in Brooklyn.

New York City mayor Eric Adams said he's eager to end the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, which would clear the way for the Nets to use their All-Star point guard in games at the Barclays Center. Irving has played in road games with the Nets but refused the COVID vaccine required for players in the New York home market.

Major cities are repealing mask and vaccine mandates with Philadelphia, Boston and soon Chicago among them.
