Kevin Durant (knee) out 4-6 weeks

After suffering an injury in Saturday night's game against the Pelicans, Durant has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL. The team is expecting Durant to miss around 4 to 6 weeks. There was relief that the injury was not more serious since knee injuries can often be a great concern. Durant is expected to make a full recovery and should return before the postseason easily as long as there are no setbacks.

Fantasy Impact

This is tough news for Durant fantasy owners. The overall SF1 and NBA's leading scorer is going to miss a significant amount of time. I would expect the Nets to err on the side of caution due to Durant's injury history and the Net's postseason aspirations. Durant has proven time and time again that he should return to full strength when he returns, but the injury will likely restrict his minutes down the line. The main beneficiaries of this will be none other than James Harden and Kyrie Irving. Harden has been domiant already, but he will get even more usage, while Irving should get a big opportunity over the next month or so with Brooklyn having 11 of their next 14 games on the road.
