Odd Night For Kevin Durant due to COVID-19

It didn't seem as though Kevin Durant was having fun on Friday night. After initially being ruled out of the starting lineup for Brooklyn's matchup against Toronto due to contact tracing, KD checked into the game at the 4:13 mark of the 1st quarter. For the first time in Durant's career, he was coming off the bench (he had previously started all 866 games in his career).  

After playing just over 19 minutes, and scoring only 8 points, Durant was then pulled from the game for good.  

Below is a statement from the league on what happened.

Brooklyn ultimately lost the game to the Raptors, 123-117, as Pascal Siakam had 33 points, 11 rebounds & 6 assists while Kyle Lowry chipped in 30 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. After tonight's game, KD took to Twitter to share his feelings on the situation. 

Durant has already been ruled out of the Nets game on Saturday versus Philadelphia, and it remains to be seen if he will miss anymore time after that.
