Kevin Durant To Miss Time

After undergoing an MRI, Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant has been diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral in his left knee. The team also noted that they believe he could return in four to six weeks. 

Although losing Durant for any amount of time is bad for the Nets, it honestly could have been a lot worse for the 33-year-old. During Saturday night's game against the New Orleans Pelicans, Bruce Brown fell into his knee and Durant had to leave the contest because of it. Thankfully, it isn't as bad as fans feared. 

The Nets will surely miss Durant, though. In 36 games this year, he is averaging 29.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 5.8 assists. Needless to say, it's been another amazing campaign for the superstar, but unfortunately, it will be paused for now. 

The Nets are currently second place in the Eastern Conference with a 27-15 record. Even with this being the case, it is an immensely close conference, as the sixth-place Cleveland Cavaliers are just two games behind them. Therefore, the Nets are up for quite the challenge without Durant. Let's see how they end up performing without him.
