Warriors’ Durant to return Thursday

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant, who has been out since March 14 due to an incomplete rib fracture, is expected to return Thursday (3/29) against the Milwaukee Bucks.

“You can tell them I’m playing Thursday,” Durant told ESPN Tuesday night.

Durant suffered the injury on March 11 and missed six games. The 2018 Finals MVP is averaging 26.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists on the season.

The Warriors are getting Durant back at a perfect time, as the team is currently without its three other All-Stars in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
