But soon he was seen nowhere as an MCL sprain got him sidelined for months and it just changed everything. Injuries have been always concerning for players like Kevin Durant and especially him since everyone is aware how the Golden State Warriors and he parted ways and now because of him being in rehabilitation the Brooklyn Nets are stuck in the play-in tournament even though they are serious championship contenders in the eastern conference.

Currently, under the leadership of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the Nets are ranked as the seventh seed in the eastern conference with the record of 43 wins and 38 losses at .531.
