Kyrie out of second China game with injury

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving will not play in the team’s second game in China against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday after he aggravated a facial fracture Thursday, the team announced.

Irving played just one minute of the Nets’ 114-111 win. He left the game after the Lakers’ Rajon Rondo inadvertently hit him in the face while shielding the ball.

Irving suffered the facial fracture Sept. 24 when he was elbowed in the face during a pickup game. He was wearing a mask for Thursday’s game in Shanghai.

After being hit by Rondo, Irving immediately took off his mask, winced and signaled to the bench that he was coming off the floor.

Caris LeVert, who left Thursday’s game after being poked in the eye in the first quarter, is listed as questionable for Saturday.
