Things got off to an incredibly promising start for the Brooklyn Nets this season –Kevin Durant COVID-19
We all basically confirmed they were a championship contender after their first game of the year — but the past few weeks have not been great. Kevin Durant COVID-19
Kevin Durant COVID-19: Not only have they slipped to 3-4 on the year, but they’ve also lost Spencer Dinwiddie to a torn ACL and now they’ll have to go without Kevin Durant for at least their next four games.
Losing a guy for four games certainly doesn’t sound like the end of the world (and it isn’t), but it’s a pretty rough blow for a Nets team that has been sputtering and is still trying to find its stride. Plus, with a condensed season this year, every game carries more importance. Being without Durant probably won’t cripple the Nets, especially if Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert can pick up the slack, but they need to be extremely careful that they don’t slide too far down the Eastern Conference standings this early in the season.
On the bright side, if things do start falling apart for the Nets, Durant will have plenty of free time to start setting up those burner Twitter accounts.
