In what’s become almost a nightly occurrence this season, the Nets will be without another set of stars Monday night in Minnesota against the Timberwolves.
Kyrie Irving (personal reasons/family matters) and LaMarcus Aldridge (non-COVID related illness) have been listed as out for the matchup up north, marking another game where the Nets aren’t playing at full strength.
James Harden is still dealing with a hamstring strain, so even when Irving and Aldridge are back and available, the team will still be down a star — but down just one star, now that Kevin Durant has made his return after a two-month hiatus with a hamstring strain of his own.
Durant, Blake Griffin and co. will have to do for the Nets Monday night against a Timberwolves team that has the worst record in the NBA.
Tyler Johnson was also included on the injury report and is out due to right knee soreness.
