Summary

— Kevin Durant doesn't want to hear about how many minutes he's playing.The subject of Durant's minutes is going to continue to be an issue for the Brooklyn Nets, who have lost five of their last seven games and are in the process of reintegrating Kyrie Irving into the rotation. The pandemic has thrown the concept of load management out the window, with whatever players are available needing to play as much as they can as teams deal with outbreaks that have required reinforcements from the G League.Monday's game in Portland, as a matter of fact, required that unprecedented short-turnaround flight because it was rescheduled from late December because of the Nets not having enough available players."It would be great to have Kevin play 32 minutes a night and keep him really fresh," Nash said. He admitted on Monday night that he still hasn't gotten his wind back."It would be great if we didn't have to get him up to 40 tonight," Nash said before the game in Portland, in which Irving played exactly 40 minutes.
