Finally, there's some good news for the Brooklyn Nets as superstar Kevin Durant is expected to be available against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. However, it's still unclear if the other half of the 7-11 duo, Kyrie Irving, will also return from his mysterious hiatus.

Per ESPN's Tim Bontemps, the one-time NBA MVP is finally cleared after being sidelined for the past week due to the league's strict Health and Safety Protocols.

Durant was initially supposed to just sit out versus the Utah Jazz due to possible exposure with COVID-19, but the team elected to sit him out for the rest of the week. The two-time NBA champion has missed Brooklyn's last three games, with the team going 2-1 in his absence.

Kyrie Irving, meanwhile, has missed the last two games after suddenly opting not to play against the Philadelphia 76ers. The six-time All-Star also did not join the rest of the team in their road game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Nets, on the other hand, have struggled without their two players and currently hold a 5-5 win-loss slate. They got outplayed by the Grizzlies in their last outing on Friday, 115-110. Caris LeVert did his best to make up for the pair's absence by dropping 43 points on 15-for-23 shooting from the field and 7-of-9 from downtown, along with five boards and six assists in 36 minutes.

Still, it's quite clear the Steve Nash-mentored team won't get too far unless Durant and Irving can consistently play games together. While KD's probable return is a good start, the Nets brass must still sort out Irving's situation.
