Golden State Warriors see Kevin Durant healthy before NBA Playoffs

Kevin Durant is progressing well through his recovery

Kevin Durant is progressing well through his recovery

Durant has not played since injuring his knee on February 28 against the Wizards.

Despite Kevin Durant having been seen taking jumpers and running sprints on the court, his return is not quite as close as it may seem. Last week, he had finally shed the bulky knee brace on his left leg.

As pointed out by James Herbert of CBSSports.com, it would be ideal for Durant to come back to the Warriors in the regular season. It was Golden State's 28th road win of the season, becoming the first team ever to win at least 28 road games in three consecutive seasons. Thompson finished with a game-high 29 points. Stephen Curry has been on the forefront of that stepping up his play over their current winning streak by registering 20 0r more points four times while recording five or more assists in all but one game. He's not the only one either, as it seems that a return before the 2017 National Basketball Association playoffs could be on the agenda for Durant.

Kevin Durant's recovery giving Warriors reason for optimism

While the Warriors or Durant has been generally mom on projected return date for the forward, there is a clear expectation from the Golden State camp that "KD" will return before the start of the 2017 NBA Playoffs.

The Warriors are expected to provide an official update on Durant's status late next week after they increase his rehab work.

Obviously, Durant wasn't moving around like he would in the National Basketball Association game. The Warriors still have the best overall record in the league and entered Saturday 2.5 games ahead of San Antonio in the Western Conference. With much of its normal rotation watching from the bench, Golden State slogged through a 107-85 loss that trimmed its lead over the Spurs for the West's top seed to half a game. The top seed gains home court advantage throughout the playoffs and the Warriors want to return to the NBA Finals with the help of their raucous crowd.
