It's been almost a month since Kevin Durant last played for the Golden State Warriors after suffering a knee injury in a game against the Washington Wizards. Many think that it was a season-ending injury and he might be able to comeback in the postseason for the team. But good news is coming for Warriors fans as recent reports are saying that Kevin Durant rehabilitation is looking good and he appears to be back on his old form.
Kevin Durant transfer to the Golden State Warriors from the Oklahoma City Thunder made a big buzz last summer. His rumored rift with former buddy and teammate Russell Westbrook is true after all. Durant is also being accused that he will only destroy the good rotation of the Warriors with his transfer. But it seems that he adjusted well to the team afterward and has been a solid contributor for the Warriors this season.
Before the injury, Durant is already averaging 25.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 59 games he has played. Now that Kevin Durant is out, fans are worried that the campaign of the team will take a dip. And it appears that it is already happening, as the Golden State Warriors record is 7-5 without him. And now, latest news are saying that he could back much earlier than expected.
According to FOXSports, Kevin Durant is seen practicing with the Golden State Warriors Tuesday before the team's game against the Dallas Mavericks. The video footage is showing Durant shooting some jumpers and made eight out of eleven of them. The brace on his leg is gone and he shows no rustiness after missing the team's last eleven games.
The fear that the Kevin Durant will be gone for the rest of the season is all over. Though the Golden State Warriors said there is no timetable when will Durant will be back to join them, there is anticipation that he'll be suiting up for them before the regular season ends. With that scenario, the Warriors are hoping that Durant's injury is completely healed as they are trying to bring the title they've won two seasons ago.
