The hopes of seeing Kevin Durant in action this season have been played down by the Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson.

The MVP of the 2013-2014 season suffered an Achilles tendon injury against the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals last season and has been sidelined since.

Without Durant and Kyrie Irving, the Nets are currently 8th in the East with 16 wins and 20 losses.
