Certain items are required to be determined at the partnership level. The gain from a sale is one of those items. The K-1 amount should be net of basis. If it was not reported that way, it should be corrected. Failing that, there is a method for reporting a partnership item differently than it is reported on the K-1. This would involve completing and filing Form 8082. You can download the form at this link.
