The Brooklyn Nets are hoping for the return of the Ace.
According to reporter Shams Charania of 『The Athletic』, Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant (forward, 208cm, 109kg) is preparing for a comeback.
Starting with running this week and light training, he is about to start court training as well. The injured area has improved a lot. However, he will have to be re-examined in two weeks, and his return is expected to be determined based on the test results.
Durant is currently off the line with a right knee injury. He has been out since the beginning of this month due to a sprained medial collateral ligament. In the away game against Miami Heat on the 9th (Korean time), he could not avoid injury. This season, he appeared in many matches without major injuries, but was injured in the middle of the season and was sidelined for a considerable period of time.
He appeared in 39 games before the injury. He recorded 29.7 points (.559 .376 .934), 6.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists in 36 minutes per game. Following last season, he averaged more than 29 points, as well as a number of rebounds and assists. After Jared Jack took over, his performance led to the team’s victory. Thanks to this, Brooklyn is at the top of the Eastern Conference. 헤라카지노도메인
Brooklyn has been sluggish in recent games where Durant has missed. This season, he won 4 consecutive losses, which is the most tied for the club. It was Brooklyn, which had not had a long losing streak since the manager was replaced, but it was not easy to fill the vacancy of Durant, who was no one else. However, they have recently been on a winning streak by beating the Utah Jazz and Golden State.
Brooklyn dominated the league with 18 wins and two losses, including a season-high 12 straight wins in 20 games before losing four in a row. Continuing the extraordinary rise, he suddenly raised the rankings significantly, and finally showed off his appearance as a candidate for the championship. While the one-two punch was very active, Brooklyn’s proud tall players were in harmony and showed a strong side.
Durant’s health, and no one else’s, is the most important thing to achieve the desired results this season. Not only does he account for a large proportion of his power, but he also has a lot of experience in big matches. If he returns even during the season, it is expected that he will be able to rise to a high place in the playoffs. However, if the colon lengthens, Brooklyn is bound to struggle.
Meanwhile, Brooklyn is 4th in the conference with a 29-17 record so far this season. They are half a game behind the Milwaukee Bucks, third in the conference, and just one game behind the Philadelphia 76ers, second in the conference. The ranking can change at any time during the season, so it is worth aiming for a maximum of 2nd place. However, the gap with the Cleveland Cavaliers, fifth in the conference, is one game, so it is not an area of stability.
