Nets forward Kris Humphries will not miss playoff games after reaching a divorce settlement with Kim Kardashian, according to TMZ.

The divorce case for the 72-day marriage will be settled Friday after a year-and-a-half of proceedings during which Humphries was ordered to court and threatened with fines by the judge after he missed the last hearing for a Nets shoot-around Friday in Indianapolis.

TMZ reported Thursday that Humphries had "softened" his demands that included an annulment declaring the marriage as fraudulent.

By settling the case prior to the May 6 trial, Humphries would be free to play and practice for the Nets during their first-round playoff series with the Bulls that begins Saturday.
