The Brooklyn Nets, which were cruising, were hit with a super bad news. In the end, Kevin Durant is out for about a month.
Local media ‘ESPN’ said on the 10th (Korean time), “Durant was diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his right knee. He is scheduled to be re-diagnosed in two weeks, but will likely be sidelined for about a month,” the report said. It is virtually impossible to qualify for the All-Star Game.
Durant suffered an unexpected injury during an away game against the Miami Heat on the 9th. About a minute before the end of the third quarter, he collided with Jimmy Butler, who landed after attempting a shot, and his right knee snapped. Durant played about 30 seconds after the injury and was replaced when Brooklyn requested time-out. Durant was moved to the locker room after being substituted and was no longer involved. 메이저사이트
This isn’t the first time Durant has injured his knee. In January of last year, he injured the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and was sidelined for two months. Brooklyn, where even Kyrie Irving was restricted from participating due to the Corona 19 vaccine issue, suffered only 5 wins and 17 losses, including 11 consecutive losses while Durant was away. In 2017, when he was with the Golden State Warriors, he missed about a month after bumping into his teammate Zaja Pachulia.
Durant averaged 29.7 points (55.9% field goal rate), 1.8 3-pointers, 6.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.5 blocked shots in 39 games this season. He led Brooklyn to an upward trend of 17 wins and 2 losses in 19 games, and was even mentioned as an MVP candidate. However, he suffered an unexpected injury and fell out of line. Brooklyn meets reef.
