happened during a game against the Golden State Warriors. This was his first
game after having to sit back due to the pandemic. The strain on his hamstring
is said to be mild. At first, they thought he would only miss two games, but
this is the fourth already.
A further word
from Steve Nash, the Nets Team Coach, revealed that there is no definite time
for Kevin Durant’s return. However, he also said that it is unlikely for Kevin

All-Star Game Now Set in Date
pandemic, the NBA All-Star game is all set. The game will be held on Sunday,
March 7, in Atlanta, the home of the Atlanta Hawks. The action will start at
3:30 PM PT.

The All-Star Selection Has Weird
learned the 10 starters for the upcoming NBA 2021 All-Star game. The reserves
will be announced next. On March 4, LeBron James and Kevin Durant will be
announcing their picks. After that, we expect that there will be a lot of
discussions as to why some players were selected and why some were not.

he was not picked as a starter. So far, this is good because he has a calf injury,
and he will likely miss the game anyway.
On the other hand,
the player with the least fan votes is Nate Hinton. He has only played for 19
minutes in his career, but 238 fans voted for him.
