Nets star Kevin Durant to sit out vs Clippers

Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant will miss his fourth straight game with a strained left hamstring when he sits out against the host Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, February 21 (Monday, February 22, Philippine time). 

"Like I keep saying, I don't think this is a long-term thing," Nets coach Steve Nash said. "But there is elements of maybe it being, taking a few more days than we thought or just being cautious. I think right now both are necessary. I don't think he's ready, I think he needs more time, but we're also definitely going to be cautious."

The vaunted trio of Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving has played in just 7 games together for the Nets, who enter Sunday's tilt on a season-best five-game winning streak.

Durant, 32, is averaging 29.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game this season after missing all of 2019-2020 due to recovery from a torn Achilles tendon sustained in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals.

Recently named to his 11th All-Star Game, Durant has averaged 27.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 868 career games (867 starts) with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors and Nets. – Rappler.com
