The Brooklyn Nets have announced their starting lineup for Friday night's ESPN game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia. 

The full lineup for the Nets can be seen in a post that is embedded below from FantasyLabs NBA. 

The Nets will start James Harden, Joe Harris, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Nicolas Claxton. 

Meanwhile, they are still without seven-time All-Star guard Kyrie Irving, who remains out due to the New York City vaccine mandate. 

Irving could technically play in Friday evening's contest, because its a road game in Philadelphia, but the Nets came out before the season and announced that Irving would not be allowed to play or practice with the team until he can be a full-time participant.

The game will be a good one, because the 76ers are also without their star ball-handler in Ben Simmons. 

The latest on the three-time All-Star can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from Shams Charania of The Athletic. 

The game is scheduled for 7:30 Eastern Time.
