Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant (hamstring) will miss at least another week and it’s uncertain when he will be ready to return to the lineup, according to the team.

Thursday’s contest will mark the 10th straight game missed by Durant, who will have another scan on his injured hamstring, head coach Steve Nash said Wednesday.


The All-Star hasn’t played since Feb. 13 at Golden State, which may have prompted the team to add forward Blake Griffin this week for depth.

However, Griffin is not expected to play for the Nets on Thursday against Boston.

Griffin is listed out with a left knee injury and hasn’t played since Feb. 12, his final game with the Detroit Pistons.
