So Kevin Durant will be re-evaluated on February 7th. Brooklyn has 4 games after that before the All-Star break.
Wouldn’t be surprised if Nets hold him out through the break to give him an extended rest. – 12:33PM

The Nets say Kevin Durant is going to be evaluated again in two weeks and that he will begin running and doing on-court basketball activities this week. Durant has been out with an MCL sprain since Jan. 8. – 12:32PM

Mike Vorkunov: Kevin Durant was re-evaluated yesterday. He’ll be reassessed again in two weeks. The Nets say he is “progressing well and as expected.” He is going to begin running and on court activities this week. -Street Twitter @MikeVorkunov / January 24, 2023

Adrian Wojnarowski: Recovery has progressed as hoped, but question will be if it makes sense to bring Durant back — if he’s ready — for only a few games ahead of All-Star break. Nets could give him even more time to rehab for resumption on Feb. 24. -via Twitter @wojespn / January 24, 2023

The digital creator business Goldenset Collective launched yesterday with $10 million in seed funding — including backing from Thirty Five Ventures, the investment firm of NBA star Kevin Durant. As traditional athletes increasingly bring their money and business acumen into creator-powered businesses, Durant is merely the latest to dip his toes into the space. -Street Digiday /January 23, 2023
