Durant (hamstring) will not play before the All-Star break, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
A strained left hamstring has prevented Durant from seeing the court since Feb. 13, and he'll continue to be sidelined for at least the next three games. In his absence, Bruce Brown, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Tyler Johnson should continue seeing expanded roles.
Durant (hamstring) is out for Thursday's game against the Magic, Billy Reinhardt of NetsDaily.com reports.
Durant will miss a sixth straight game with a strained left hamstring. After Thursday's game, he'll have just three more chances to take the court before the All-Star break. For what it's worth, Nets head coach Steve Nash said he expects Durant to return before the end of the first half, according to Brian Lewis of the New York Post.
Durant (hamstring) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Kings, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
The 31-year-old will be sidelined for the fifth consecutive contest due to the hamstring injury, which comes after coach Steve Nash said Sunday he had "no update" on the former MVP. Durant's next chance to take the court will be Thursday versus Orlando, though there's been no indication he's expected to return for that contest.
Durant (hamstring) remains without a firm timetable to return to game action, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
Coach Steve Nash told the media Sunday that he has "no update" on Durant, though he did note that the team's training staff said the All-Star is "improving at a rapid rate." The Nets, and fantasy managers alike, will hope that Durant can return at some point in Week 10, but he's a risky start in weekly lineup leagues, especially considering Brooklyn has only three games on the schedule.
Durant (hamstring) is out Sunday against the Clippers, Malika Andrews of ESPN.com reports.
Durant remains without a timeline for a return from a strained left hamstring, and he'll still be out Sunday. The team is looking for him to show "improved strength" before he retakes the court. His next chance to play arrives Tuesday against the Kings.
Durant (hamstring) is without a timetable for a return as the team is looking for him to show "improved strength," Mark Medina of USA Today reports.
Durant had already been ruled out of Thursday's contest against the Lakers due to a hamstring strain, but this report comes as a bit alarming as it doesn't sound like the 32-year-old's return is necessarily imminent. Brooklyn has two days off after Thursday's tilt, so perhaps Durant will be feeling better by the time Sunday's matchup against the Clippers comes around. The team has no strong motivation to rush Durant back, however, and will take every precaution as he plays in his first season since suffering an Achilles tear.
Durant (hamstring) is out Thursday against the Lakers, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.
Durant will miss a third straight game Thursday as a result of a strained left hamstring. The organization will be understandably cautious with the future Hall of Famer, considering he's coming off a torn Achilles. Even with that being the case, Durant has been excellent this season, averaging 29.0 points, 7.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.4 blocks in 35.7 minutes.
Durant won't play Monday against the Kings or Tuesday against the Suns due to a mild left hamstring strain, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Durant returned to play Saturday after a three-game absence due to the league's health and safety protocols. However, he'll now be sidelined for at least two games due to a mild hamstring injury. In his absence, Jeff Green, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Bruce Brown should see increased roles for the Nets.
Durant (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) recorded 20 points (8-19 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, five rebounds and two blocks across 33 minutes Saturday in the Nets' 134-117 win over the Warriors.
Durant's return from a three-game absence coincided with his first matchup with Golden State since he left the team in the summer of 2019 to sign a four-year mega-deal with the Nets. Because he wasn't recovering from a positive COVID-19 test and had merely missed time due to contact tracing, Durant didn't face any restrictions in his return to action, playing a normal minutes load while pacing the team in shot attempts. While Saturday's performance was a bit more muted compared to what Durant has typically offered this season, fantasy managers are likely just elated that he's back in the lineup again.
Durant (COVID-19 protocols) rejoined the Nets on Friday and will play Saturday against the Warriors, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
The 32-year-old missed the past three games while going through the league's health and safety protocols, but he rejoined the team when first eligible Friday. According to Greg Joyce of the New York Post, coach Steve Nash said Durant won't face any limitations after being sidelined for a week.
Durant (COVID-19 protocols) won't be eligible to rejoin the Nets until Friday, meaning he'll miss games Saturday at Philadelphia, Tuesday at Detroit and Wednesday versus Indiana, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Durant initially appeared set to miss Friday's game against the Raptors while he waited to complete contact tracing, but he was then cleared to check into the game late in the first quarter. He was later pulled in the second half after playing 19 minutes, with the league citing health and safety protocols. Brooklyn proceeded to rule him out for Saturday's game at Philadelphia, and Charania's report indicates Durant will be out for the back-to-back set to begin the upcoming week. The situation has been a bit of a headache for fantasy managers, but at least now, there's some resolution with his status. While Durant is sidelined, Jeff Green, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Bruce Brown could all see increased roles.

It's not yet clear when he could return to action. Bruce Brown, Jeff Green and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot could see increased run for the Nets in his absence.
Durant (COVID-19 protocols) is unlikely to play in Saturday's game against Philadelphia, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Durant was removed from Friday's game against the Raptors early due to the league's health and safety protocols, and he's unlikely to travel with the team to Philadelphia ahead of Saturday's game against the 76ers. The league is still conferring with the Nets regarding his ability to travel, but Bruce Brown and Jeff Green could see increased run for the Nets if Durant is unavailable Saturday.

Durant was unavailable to start Friday's game due to contact tracing, but he checked into the game early in the first quarter. However, he was removed from the game just after halftime due to the league's health and safety protocols. Prior to his removal, he recorded eight points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block over 19 minutes. It's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return for Saturday's matchup against the 76ers.
Durant (COVID-19 protocols) has entered Friday's game against the Raptors.
Durant was pulled from the starting lineup minutes before Friday's game due to health and safety protocols. It appears whatever test the league was waiting for has come back in his favor. The perenial All-Star checked into the game with four minutes left in the first quarter and should see his normal workload the remainder of the way.
Durant (COVID-19 protocols) is unavailable to start Friday's game against the Raptors.
Durant was initially listed as a starter for Friday's game against Toronto, but the team said that he won't be available to begin the game while undergoing contact tracing. The Nets are still awaiting an update regarding whether he'll be available later in the contest, but Bruce Brown is starting in his place Friday.
Durant recorded 28 points (11-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds and one block across 38 minutes Tuesday in the Nets' 124-120 win over the Clippers.
Durant's 13 shot attempts were a season low, but thanks to some elite efficiency, he was able to come close to his average of 30.8 points per game. Over his last five contests, Durant has been running hot on all areas of the court, converting 53.1 percent of his field goals, 41.9 percent of his three-pointers and 91.2 percent of his free throws.
Duran compiled 37 points (11-19 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 13-13 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 38 minutes in Sunday's 149-146 loss to the Wizards.
Despite the narrow loss, Durant keeps on rolling with superior production. Over the last five games, he's averaged 31.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.2 blocks. He's going to burn fantasy managers with occasional rest days, especially on a back-to-back, but he's otherwise one of the most prolific producers in the league.
