    NEW YORK — Kevin Durant is at least two weeks away from returning to the Brooklyn Nets, though his right knee is improving enough for him to resume some basketball activities this week.

    The Nets gave an update on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) on Durant's recovery from a sprained ligament in his right knee, saying he was evaluated Monday and was progressing well.

    Durant was injured during a victory in Miami on Jan. 8, when the Heat's Jimmy Butler fell backward into Durant's knee. An MRI exam revealed an isolated sprain in his medial collateral ligament.

    The Nets have won two straight after losing their first two games without Durant. They said he will be reassessed again in two weeks, leaving open the possibility he could return before the Feb. 19 All-Star Game.
