Kevin Durant, the all-star Brooklyn Nets player is expected to miss his recurring All-Star game. Kevin was injured on January 15th during the game against New Orleans Pelicans. The Nets dominated the Pelicans 120-105 but lost Kevin Durant in the process.
Kevin Durant’s Injury
Kevin Durant who was supposed to play in the coming All-star game in Cleveland suffered a sprained Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) in his left knee. Bruce Brown fell backwards on Kevin during his encounter with Herb Jones which resulted in him walking towards the locker room for his diagnosis. Kevin sat through the game and was refrained on the floors for four to six weeks.
The rehabilitation was still in process and fans were expecting to somehow watch Kevin play in the all-stars, but the situation looks grim and it seems Durant won’t make it to the floors and will remain on the sidelines.
The situation seems unfortunate as Kevin tops the Eastern Conference Frontcourt players votes and is the 3rd leading vote-getter following LeBron James and Stephen Curry. The injury replacement player is yet to be announced.
The All-star game is set to be held on the 20th of February with a number of big shots in the roster.
