Speaking to reporters before tonight’s game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Durant has progressed from shooting in a wheelchair to standstill shooting and is now able to handle jump shots.
Durant was diagnosed with a Grade 2 MCL sprain and a tibial bone bruise after injuring his left knee in a February 28th game. He was first diagnosed with a hyperextended knee before an MRI showed the real extent of the damage. Doctors said they planned to re-evaluate him after four weeks, which would be 10 days from now.
Golden State has gone 4-4 without Durant and leads San Antonio by just a game and a half coming into tonight’s action.
