Brooklyn Nets star forward Kevin Durant injured his left knee during the second quarter of Saturday’s match against the New Orleans Pelicans and safe to it doesn’t seem to be good news for a team who is challenging their way up to the top of the Eastern Conference. Having already registered 12 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists so far in just 12 minutes of action, KD seems to be not returning for the remainder of the game.

The team called it a left knee sprain, and it happened with just shy of six minutes left in the quarter as Pelicans guard Herb Jones headed to the crate and slammed into Nets guard Bruce Brown, who fell in reverse into Durant, who was remaining behind the play. Durant will go through an MRI on Sunday, as per reports.

Kevin Durant has been producing his best numbers in the 2021-22 season and has been doing it with ease. Especially with Kyrie Irving being available as a part-time player, his absence could be key for the Brooklyn Nets form and position in the Eastern Conference.

Brooklyn’s leading scorer attempted to remain in the game for a couple of seconds, strolling around, attempting to relax the knee, however, he strolled over to the seat and looked at himself presently. Durant went straight back to the locker room to be looked at.
