Kevin Durant is expected to miss his fifth straight game for the Brooklyn Nets. Durant has been out with a hamstring injury since last week.

Despite Durant’s absence, the Nets won the last five games including matchups against the Lakers and the Clippers. They have the second best record in the East behind Philadelphia.

After sitting out all the last season due to injury, Brooklyn definitely will not rush Durant’s comeback, especially with Kyrie Irving and James Harden leading the team.

Durant has as strong start in his first season with the Nets, averaging 29.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game.

The Nets are set to face the Sacramento Kings Tuesday hoping to continue adding to their winning total.
