Article Summary:

When Kevin Durant suffered a sprained knee with a 4-6 week timeframe, most around the league assumed that meant he would be out for the All-Star Game, Feb. 20 in Cleveland.

Durant will be voted in as a starter for the game – he could even be the captain of a team, he was just ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo for most fan votes in the East heading into the final week – but he will not play.

TNT’s Chris Haynes confirmed it on the broadcast of the Nets’ loss to the Lakers Tuesday night: Durant will be out for the All-Star Game.

Who gets to make the All-Star Game as a replacement on the roster depends on who the coaches select as reserves.
