The Brooklyn Nets continue to deal with injury problems.

Brooklyn’s star forward, Kevin Durant, has been back for a couple of games, but the two-time NBA champion has been sidelined once again.

Durant, 32, had to be helped off the floor with an apparent leg injury during Sunday’s game against the Miami Heat.
