OAKLAND (KRON)– Warriors’ small forward, Kevin Durant, has been off the court for nearly a month after suffering a knee injury during a game against the Wizards but he’s showing signs of improvement, according to a Warriors representative.
Warrior medical and athletic staff have been monitoring his injury and plan to incorporate him into non-contact basketball drills.
Those drills will consist of shooting, running and jumping.
Based on his performance with the drills and increased intensity workouts, Warriors staff will determine whether to incorporate him into contact drills and regular practice.
There is a possibility Durant can return to the game at the end of the regular season, according to a representative.
He’ll be re-evaluated again next week.
