Kevin Durant (hamstring) officially cleared for Nets Wednesday
Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant (hamstring) will return to the starting lineup on Wednesday against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Durant has finally been cleared following a 23-game absence due to a hamstring strain. He is expected to be on some type of minutes limit in his first game back but Durant's return will still help offset the loss of James Harden (hamstring) and take some usage from Kyrie Irving.
numberFire’s models project KD for 36.9 FanDuel points over 28.5 minutes versus the Pelicans and he has a salary of $8,800 on Wednesday’s nine-game slate.
