Brooklyn's Kyrie Irving (ankle) ruled out for Tuesday's Game 5 matchup

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving (ankle) will not play in Tuesday's Game 5 contest against the Milwaukee Bucks.

What It Means:

Irving will not be available after Brooklyn's superstar was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain. Expect Mike James to play an increased role against a Milwaukee team allowing 46.6 FanDuel points per game this regular season.

James' current projection includes 12.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 6.6 assists.
