Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant will not play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, missing his third consecutive game with a left hamstring strain.

Durant traveled with the Nets on their five-game road trip and continues to get treatment on his hamstring. Brooklyn initially said Durant would miss at least two games. The team has called Durant’s strain “mild.”

Kyrie Irving, who missed Tuesday’s game against Phoenix with lower back tightness, is listed as probable at the Lakers on Thursday.

The Nets’ Big Three of Durant, Irving and James Harden have played only seven games together. Durant has missed 11 of the Nets’ 30 games.

After being sidelined for all of the 2019-20 season with an Achilles injury, Durant is averaging 29 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists.
