Sources: KD plans to play Sunday after sitting 3


Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant is planning to return to the lineup for Sunday’s game against the Phoenix Suns, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Durant missed three games with a left thigh contusion.

He got hurt early in the first quarter of the Nets’ game against the Miami Heat last Sunday. Durant was driving toward the basket when he collided with Trevor Ariza. Afterward, the team deemed that his status was day-to-day. Durant remained on the Nets’ road trip to New Orleans and Tampa, and he continued to get treatment on his thigh.

Despite Durant’s return, the Nets are not yet at full strength.

Brooklyn remains without James Harden, who experienced a setback in his hamstring strain rehabilitation last week and now is out indefinitely. The team also is missing Nic Claxton, who had emerged as a key part of the big-man rotation. Claxton has missed three games in the league’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

The Nets host the Suns at 3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Information from ESPN’s Malika Andrews was used in this report.
