In related news, Pacers forward Domantas Sabonis has been named the All-Star replacement in the Eastern Conference for Durant as well. Durant has missed six games due to his injury and now will miss at least three more games before being re-evaluated after All-Star weekend in Atlanta. Bruce Brown makes for a smart pick-up in fantasy leagues in the short-term, as he has played very well over his past three games.
