All-Star Kevin Durant has been forced out of Saturday's Brooklyn Nets game against the New Orleans Pelicans due to a left knee sprain.
Durant is expected to undergo an MRI on the injury which he sustained with just under six minutes remaining in the second quarter.
The 33-year-old two-time NBA champion was ruled out by the Nets for the remainder of the game, after teammate Bruce Brown fell on his left knee upon a drive from Pels guard Herb Jones.
Durant was making his return after he sat out Thursday's 130-109 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The 2014 MVP had been averaging 29.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.9 assists prior to Saturday's game.
