Durant ruled out of Nets against Pelicans as Harden remains sidelined
Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant (thigh) will not suit up for Tuesday's matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans.
Kevin Durant will sit out the Brooklyn Nets' clash with the New Orleans Pelicans due to a left thigh contusion.
Durant played just four minutes before exiting in Brooklyn's buzzer-beating 109-107 loss at the Miami Heat on Sunday.
Nets superstar Durant missed 23 games because of a hamstring injury before returning on April 7.
In total, former MVP Durant has missed 24 of Brooklyn's 57 games this season and will now watch from the sidelines for Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans.
Durant has been averaging 27.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game this season.
The star-studded Nets will also be without James Harden against Zion Williamson and the Pelicans in New Orleans.
Harden suffering from same injury as Durant
Harden – another former MVP in Brooklyn – has not played since April 5 due to a hamstring strain, missing six successive games.
The All-Star guard, who is one of the frontrunners for MVP honours this season, has been averaging 25.2 points, 10.9 assists and 8.0 rebounds per game in 2020-21 after arriving from the Houston Rockets via January's blockbuster trade.
The Nets (38-19) are second in the Eastern Conference, behind the Philadelphia 76ers.
