Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant will not play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday with a left hamstring strain.
This marks the third game Durant has missed since Saturday as he works his way back from a mild hamstring strain.
Durant sat out the Nets’ back-to-back victories in Sacramento on Monday and Phoenix on Tuesday.
Kyrie Irving, who missed Tuesday’s game against Phoenix with lower back tightness, is listed as probable at the Lakers on Thursday.
The Nets’ Big Three of Durant, Irving and James Harden have played only seven games together. Durant has missed 11 of the Nets’ 30 games.
After being sidelined for all of the 2019-20 season with an Achilles injury, Durant is averaging 29 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists.
