Kevin Durant reportedly won’t play if NBA season returns



As the NBA wades through the quagmire of issues that stand in the way of resuming the 2019-20 season, one thing is certain: Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant will not play.

Speaking on his The Woj Pod podcast, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski said Durant would be held out for the entire year, regardless of when the season restarts or how many games are played.

“Kevin Durant’s not coming back to the Nets this year,” Wojnarowski said. “That’s not happening. … They’re not playing him.”

Durant tore his right Achilles tendon during the 2019 NBA Finals. In April, Durant’s manager, Rich Kleinman, said it was unlikely that he would return for the stretch run of the season in an interview with SI’s Chris Mannix.
