NBA star Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets hopes to return to the court by the All-Star Game after spraining right knee ligaments, his Twitter account

“The Athletic” basketball columnist Shams Sharania.

Durant reportedly suffered the injury in early January during the Nets’ 102-101 win over the Miami Heat when the Heat’s Jimmy Butler crashed into Durant’s knee. Durant stayed in the game for a short while, but soon left the court and headed to the locker room. “There is an expectation that Durant will return to the Nets before the All-Star break and participate,” Sharanya wrote, citing his sources.

“Durant is recovering from a sprained knee ligament as planned and will be re-evaluated in two weeks,” the columnist wrote.

The All-Star Game will be held on February 19 in Salt Lake City. In the final fan vote tally a month before the All-Star Game, Durant finished second in the Eastern Conference with 5,838,182 votes behind Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo with 5,970,196 votes. Durant had to miss the All-Star Game last season due to injury.

The Nets have won 29 games in 46 games and are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
