Kevin Durant Believes MCL Injury 'Derailed' Brooklyn's Season

Kevin Durant has pointed to his MCL injury in mid-January as when the Brooklyn Nets had their season derailed.

"To be honest, I feel like our season was derailed by my injury," Durant said after Monday's practice. "So I'm not looking at it like we're just not a good basketball team. It's like there wasn't a lot of continuity with me and Kyrie [Irving] out of the lineup, that's just what it is. When we're all on the floor together, I like what we got."

Durant suffered the injury on January 15th, which forced him to miss nearly two months. In the meantime, Kyrie Irving was only allowed to play in home games and James Harden reached a level of frustration where he began to seek a trade.

The Nets are in 10th place and will have to win two games to reach the playoffs if they remain there.

"Who cares?" Durant said when asked whether he has looked at the standings. "Whoever we play, we play. I don't care who we play. I don't care that we're in the play-in. Just tip the ball up, see what happens. That's all you can control. It's too stressful thinking about we're trying to dodge a team, lining up, just play the game. We'll see what happens."
