Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant does not want anyone feeling sorry for him and his basketball “boo-boo.”
One week since injuring his left knee, Durant was sporting a large brace and crutches as he surfaced at Oracle Arena on Wednesday to brief reporters on his rehab process.
But with three weeks until a scheduled re-evaluation, Durant was not interested in throwing around possible return dates to the NBA.
The Warriors announced Durant suffered a grade two MCL sprain and a tibial bone bruise when team-mate Zaza Pachulia rolled on top of the All-Star’s leg in a game against the Washington Wizards on February 28.
Golden State has preached patience concerning Durant’s availability to start the playoffs; the team’s regular season ends April 12, six weeks after the injury.
Durant seems upbeat about the situation, though, smiling often during his nine-minute session with reporters.
