Kevin Durant will likely miss the All-Star Game as he recovers from an MCL sprain. Durant sustained the injury on January 15th. Durant missed last year's game due to a hamstring strain, as well as the 2020 game due to his Achilles rehabilitation. Durant last played in an All-Star Game in 2019.

The Nets announced the injury, but did not give a timetable for his return.

Durant is averaging 29.3 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game this season.

Durant will likely be the leading vote-getter in the Eastern Conference.
