Nets' Irving sits out vs 76ers with hamstring tightness

NEW YORK (AP) Nets guard Kyrie Irving is missing Brooklyn's game against Philadelphia because of right hamstring tightness.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said Irving was feeling soreness Sunday and then was checked again Monday before the team decided the All-Star point guard wouldn't play.

Atkinson said the Nets were choosing to be cautious because they didn't want to risk losing Irving for the long term.
