Kevin Durant may yet still play against the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday after the chaos that ensued on Friday, having been pulled from the starting lineup due to health and safety protocols, then being cleared to come in off the bench only to be pulled mid-game by the league and ruled out for the remainder of the night. He was not initially expected to be available against Philly, but the Nets say he is questionable to play on Saturday.

But while Durant’s status is up in the air, a different member of Brooklyn’s big three has been ruled out. Steve Nash will not have Kyrie Irving at his disposal on Saturday. The Nets have ruled him out due to a finger injury.

The Nets remain without Nic Claxton (right knee tendinopathy) and Spencer Dinwiddie (ACL surgery) on Saturday. For Philly, Joel Embiid (knee) and Seth Curry (illness) are questionable to play, while Ben Simmons (calf) is listed as probable.
