Nets’ Kevin Durant expected to miss the 2023 NBA All-Star Game

Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant is expected to miss the 2023 NBA All-Star Game in Salt Lake City on February 19.

The two-time NBA champion and Finals MVP has not fully recovered from an MCL sprain he suffered on January 8, hence his participation in the All-Star Game is highly unlikely.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Durant is progressing well with his recovery, but he hasn’t been cleared for contact yet. In addition to that, Brooklyn hasn’t set a timetable for his return.

Kevin Durant, who was named a starter in the All-Star Game, is averaging 29.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists, on 55.9% shooting for a Brooklyn team that is fifth in the East standings with a 32-21 record, just 0.5 games behind fourth-place Cleveland.

During Durant’s absence, the Nets have lost eight of their last 13 games, while they also traded fellow superstar Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks.
