The second half of the NBA season may have started last night but not for Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets who remains sidelined with a hamstring strain.
KD is scheduled to have more imaging done on the injury next week which means he won’t be playing till at least next week and head coach Steve Nash concurs saying those scans will dictate a clearer return timeline for Durant.
"He hasn't played in a month," Nash said. "So no matter what the scan says, there will still be an appropriate ramp-up time to make sure we put him in a position to finish the season strong."
Nash said that Durant is currently able to do half-court work and shooting drills. He is still not playing any five-on-five in practice or "full court, high-speed running." Durant stayed in Brooklyn to work with his physiotherapist while the team went to Houston for its last game before the All-Star break.
