The Golden State Warriors are hopeful star forward Kevin Durant can return from a knee injury before the postseason, but if you ask Durant, that seems very much up in the air.
““I know that’s what everybody wants to know, and is wondering,” said Durant told reporters. “But whenever my body tells me I’ll be ready to play then I’ll be ready to play. I’m not really thinking in that frame of mind.”’
The Warriors have gone 2-3 since the Durant injury vs. Washington and are struggling to make shots from the perimeter — normally the place from where they are most dangerous.
As USA Today noted: “Suddenly, the prospect of facing a formidable No. 7 seed like Russell Westbrook’s Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round (as opposed to a below-.500 squad like the eighth-place Denver Nuggets) is looking more likely for the Warriors (52-12). Suddenly, the possibility of meeting the Spurs or the third-place Houston Rockets (44-21) before the conference finals is much more real.”
