And then there was one.
The Nets on Monday ruled out Kyrie Irving and James Harden for Game 5 of their second-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks, leaving Kevin Durant as the only member of the Big 3 standing.
Irving suffered a right ankle sprain Sunday, while Harden has not played since the opening minute of Game 1 because of right hamstring tightness.
Brooklyn, which hosts Game 5 Tuesday at Barclays Center, dropped Game 4 on Sunday after Irving hurt his ankle falling onto Giannis Antetokounmpo’s foot in the first half.
Harden was injured 43 seconds into the Nets’ Game 1 win.
