The Golden State Warriors are the best team in the NBA right now. With an NBA best, 63-14 record, the Golden State Warriors are the hottest team in the NBA right now with an 11 game winning streak. Just last week, the Golden State Warriors defeated their top Western Conference rivals, the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets twice. The scary part about the Golden State Warriors right now is that they did all that without their best player, All-Star forward Kevin Durant. Now it seems Kevin Durant is set to return and that’s more news for other NBA teams.
The Golden State Warriors have set this Saturday night’s home game at the Oracle Arena against the New Orleans Pelicans as the return date for Kevin Durant, according to a report from Yahoo Sports. Barring any major setbacks, Kevin Durant is cleared to make his return to the hardcourt this Saturday.
Kevin Durant has not played since suffering a sprained MCL and bruised tibia on his left knee. Kevin Durant suffered the injury in a game against the Washington Wizards last February 28, as reported by Yahoo Sports.
Initial prognosis according to the Golden State Warriors was that Kevin Durant would be out for at least a month. Fortunately for the Golden State Warriors, Kevin Durant has been progressing well in his rehab and that Kevin Durant is on course to play the Golden State Warriors’ final three games of the regular season.
For the Golden State Warriors, it’s important for Kevin Durant to return to get some regular season games under his belt before the playoffs start. Even if Kevin Durant is on a minutes restriction, playing a couple of regular season games is necessary for Kevin Durant to get his rhythm back in time for the playoffs.
