During the Brooklyn Nets' win against the Miami Heat on Sunday, Kevin Durant left the game with a right knee injury.

The team has announced that Durant has a right MCL sprain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

While Durant suffered an MCL sprain that kept him out for six weeks about a year ago, there is optimism that he will only need to be sidelined for a month this time, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The injury occurred when Heat guard Jimmy Butler landed on Durant's knee after falling from an attempted layup.

Durant will now be unable to play for a period of time, leaving the Nets without his scoring and leadership.

However, the team does have depth to try and make up for his absence.
