Kevin Durant will be out for two weeks due to injury

Kevin Durant will be sidelined for at least the next two weeks after suffering a sprained tibial collateral ligament in his right knee, the Brooklyn Nets announced Monday.

The Nets star suffered the injury when Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler fell on Durant’s knee in the third quarter of the two teams’ game on Sunday.

Although Durant initially did not leave the court and continued to play, he finally had to retire with a minute to go in the third quarter. The Nets won the game 101-102.

The Brooklyn team said an MRI confirmed Durant’s injury and that in two weeks medical teams will re-examine the condition of the knee.

Almost a year ago, on January 15, 2022, Durant suffered the same injury, although this time to his left knee, which kept him out of competition for around 45 days.

This season, Durant is averaging 29.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.

After Sunday’s victory against the Heat, the Nets occupy the second position in the Eastern Conference, behind the Boston Celtics, with 27 wins and 13 losses.
