Kevin Durant to Miss Four Games Due to COVID-19 Protocols


Kevin Durant has been spectacular this season alongside Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. After overcoming several injuries in the past few seasons, it looks like Durant is already back to his superstar level of play. However, he is now set to miss a handful of games for the Nets over the next week.

On Monday afternoon, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that Kevin Durant is expected to require seven days of quarantine before returning to action due to contact tracing/exposure to COVID-19. Durant himself doesnt have the virus, in fact he’s tested negative three times in recent days. Rather, he came in contact with someone who tested positive and must now follow protocol.

Over the course of this seven day quarantine, the Nets will play four games against the Utah Jazz, Philadelphia 76ers, Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder without Durant. These four games couldn’t come at a worse time considering that Brooklyn has lost four of their last five.

The Nets are sitting at tenth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 3-4 to this point in the season. Losing Durant, who’s averaged 28.2 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists through his six games of the season, will be a tremendous blow.
