Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving is set to see another specialist to assess his shoulder injury.

Irving has only played 20 games for the Nets (25-28) this season, missing a large part of the campaign due to his shoulder.

Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson revealed on Tuesday that Irving would see another specialist this week.

"The shoulder is a tough thing," he said, via ESPN.

"I just think it was an on and off thing where it's bothering you. Some days you feel good, some days you don't feel good.

"But I think it got to the point it was, 'Hey, let's see another specialist'."

Irving is averaging 27.4 points, 6.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds for the Nets this season.

Brooklyn are seventh in the Eastern Conference and face the Philadelphia 76ers (34-21) on Thursday.
