Brooklyn Nets star player Kevin Durant, will miss the next four games, due to Covid 19 quarantine. As reported Durant was exposed to someone who tested positive for Covid, and because of that, NBA protocol states that he must go into quarantine for the next seven days.
Within those seven days, the Nets will play the Utah Jazz (at home) tonight, then the Philadelphia 76er, on Thursday night. The Nets will then hit the road to face the Grizzlies on Friday before going to Oklahoma City to challenge the Thunder on Sunday.
Kevin Durant is the team’s leading scorer with 28 points per game. His counterpart Kyrie Irving is the Nets second leading scorer at 26 per. The duo average almost half the Brooklyn Nets points (the team average 111 per game).
Nets fans can expect their team to struggle, because the Nets play 4 games in the next six nights. Kevin Durant is unavailable for all those games, and I’m sure Kyrie Irving, will be available for about 2 of them (because of his injury history).
