Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant has entered the NBA’s health and safety protocol.
Durant becomes the eighth Nets player to enter protocols. Forward Paul Millsap entered the protocols Monday, and was followed by forwards LaMarcus Aldridge, James Johnson and DeAndre’ Bembry and guard Jevon Carter on Tuesday morning. They were later joined Tuesday evening by James Harden and Bruce Brown.
The Nets’ COVID-19 concerns and the desire to pare back Durant’s hefty workload has led the Nets to bring back Kyrie Irving though he is still unvaccinated.
