Kevin Durant came back from a year-long injury to keep dominating the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets star is a candidate for MVP this season, but injuries as well as COVID-19 protocols haven't let him stay consistent this season.
This will continue, as the Nets confirmed the forward will miss at least next two games with 'mild' left hamstring strain.

Durant has been averaging 29.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists on 52.4% shooting, including a career-best 43.4% from 3-point range, in 35.8 minutes across 19 games.
“We got a lot of potential. Each and every game we play good in spurts,” Coach Steve Nash said about the Nets chemistry this season. “We have to put together a full game … it’s about execution. I think we’re trending in the right direction.”
