Alas, we won’t get to see Brooklyn’s new Big 3 of Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant in action, as Durant won’t be with the team following a bizarre sequence of events yesterday.
After an associate of Durant’s returned an inconclusive COVID-19 test, the Nets star was held out of the starting lineup for Friday night’s game against Toronto.
While Durant’s absence means we won’t be able to definitively put to rest who the Eastern Conference favorite should be after tonight, it’s still an important game for the Sixers.
The Nets say Kevin Durant is questionable tonight against Philadelphia and list Kyrie Irving as out with a right index finger sprain
