It appears K.D’s injury is more serious than many people thought.
Earlier this year, Durant suffered an Achilles’ injury and has been noticeably absent this season.
In his interview with Stephen A. Smith, Durant confirmed that he is not expected to return this season.
When asked about returning Durant stated that he for sure would not come back this season and that his primary focus is to work on getting better for next year.
“I’m not thinking about it. Just rehabbing every day. It’s a slow process, still grinding”, says Durant.
While lamenting about his injury, he offered some words of encouragement to recently injured Stephen Curry, who broke his hand earlier this week.
“Having him out is going to be tough for them to sustain. Hopefully, he gets back and gets healthy.”
