|Kevin Durant (knee) will miss at least two more weeks for the Nets|
Kevin Durant, a forward for the Brooklyn Nets, won't be back on the team for at least two weeks. However, his right knee is getting better enough for him to do some basketball activities this week.
The Nets gave an update on Durant's knee injury on Tuesday, saying that Dr. Riley Williams III at the Hospital for Special Surgery checked on him again on Monday. Dr. Williams is very happy with Durant's progress so far, which is good and on track. This week, Durant will keep strengthening his knee and start running and playing basketball on the court. In another two weeks, he will be looked at again.

During a win in Miami on January 8, Durant was hurt when the Heat's Jimmy Butler fell backward and hit his knee. An MRI showed that his medial collateral ligament had a single sprain.
The Nets lost their first two games without Durant, but now they have won two in a row. They said he would be looked at again in two weeks, which means he could come back before the All-Star Game on February 19.
