NEW YORK (Health & Fitness Journal) – Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving will play the Memphis Grizzlies at home on Sunday, ending an eight-game suspension imposed by the team for sharing anti-Semitic content on social media.
The seven-time National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star issued the most outspoken apology on Saturday since he was handed the suspension on Nov. 3, telling local sports network SNY that he had been on a “learning journey” and was not on the other hand, be -Semitic.
He apologized to reporters again on Sunday when the team confirmed he was cleared to play.
“Kyrie took responsibility for his trip and held talks with several members of the Jewish community,” the networks said in a statement.
“We are pleased that he is approaching the process in a meaningful way.”
