NBA: Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant to miss 4 games due to quarantine

Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant will miss the team’s next 4 games due to a precautionary measure that puts him under quarantine.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the development on Monday, stating that Durant had potential exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

The 6-9 forward is averaging 28.2 PPG, 7 RPG, and 4.8 APG for the Nets in the early 2021 season.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania has also reported that the NBA recently updated its safety rules, basically requiring all players and staff members to wear masks except during entering the game.

Brooklyn just beat Utah, 130-96 on Tuesday in its 1st game without Durant.

The Nets, currently 4-4 in the East, will take on the Philadelphia 76ers, Memphis Grizzlies, and the Oklahoma City Thunder next in their schedule.

They already are without Spencer Dinwiddie, who suffered an injury prior to the new year.
