The Nets’ nightmare of a week continues.

Earlier this week, Brooklyn fired head coach Steve Nash and is reportedly prepared to move on to Celtics suspended head coach Ime Udoka.

Amidst all of that, the organization is dealing with the fallout from All-Star guard Kyrie Irving’s antisemitic comments and Irving’s failure to apologize has now led to a suspension.

The Nets announced on Thursday that Irving will be suspended for “no less than” five games without pay.

Nets suspend Kyrie Irving for ‘no less than’ five games

Following yet another disappointing media availability from Irving on Thursday, the Nets announced Irving will be suspended for “no less than” five games without pay.

UPDATE: Irving posted a new apology Thursday night on his Instagram page after being suspended. “To All Jewish families and Communities that are hurt and affected from my post, I am deeply sorry to have caused you pain, and I apologize,” he wrote.
