Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving is available to play Wednesday against fellow Eastern Conference joint leaders the Philadelphia 76ers after missing one game for personal reasons, the team announced.

The shorthanded Nets will be without Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin because of injury management, LaMarcus Aldridge due to illness, and James Harden because of a right hamstring strain.

Irving did not feature in Tuesday afternoon's rescheduled 127-97 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Nets also announced Wednesday that guard Chris Chiozza is out indefinitely with a broken right hand, while Tyler Johnson will miss a fifth straight game with right knee soreness.

Brooklyn and Philadelphia enter their third of three matchups this season with matching 37-17 records. Wednesday's game in the City of Brotherly Love acts as a tiebreaker after the teams split the two previous meetings.
