Kris Humphries is allegedly willing to risk his career in a bid to emerge victorious in his divorce battle with Kim Kardashian.

The Brooklyn Nets basketball player's team is on track to score a place in the 2013 Playoffs, which run from April 20th to June 20th, and he is said to be willing to miss the games in order to face his estranged wife in court on May 6th, the Daily Mail reported.

A source close to the 28-year-old athlete told gossip website that Kris has already decided he will skip the Playoffs if the trial, which could last two or three days, clashes with a game.

The sports star is keen to have their 72-day marriage annulled on the grounds of fraud, insisting Kim only married him for publicity on her show 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'.

Their split has been dragging on since October 2011. The former couple got engaged the previous May after just six months of dating. (ANI)
