The Golden State Warriors are scheduled to make an update on former Most Valuable Player Kevin Durant.
Durant injured his knee in a game against the Washington Wizards on February 28. The entire basketball world continues to wait for the official timetable on his return as it can definitely tilt the championship odds.
The team previously announced that they have a four-week timetable for KD and those four weeks end today, as Mercury News gave an assessment of the situation.
"There's been some confusion about when exactly Kevin Durant is getting his official left knee re-evaluation," Anthony Slater reported.
"But during the past week, the team said Durant would likely wait until the team returned to the Bay Area from Texas on Thursday for an official re-evaluation.
Complicated things more, Steve Kerr has been mixing up his timeline of late, saying as early as Tuesday morning that Durant's re-evaluation was still 10 days away. It's not," Slater stated.
"Durant's re-evaluation is now expected to take place on the road in San Antonio on Wednesday, according to the team, with an update coming later in the day."
As of this writing, the Warriors just disposed of the Houston Rockets as part of their Texas road trip. They face San Antonio on March 29. Will the Warriors make their official statement? SF Gate confirmed that they would.
"Kevin Durant will meet with the Warriors' training staff Tuesday night or Wednesday morning to map out the next steps in his recovery from a left knee injury, a team spokesman told The Chronicle," the report stated.
"An official update on Durant's status, which could include a projected return date, is expected Wednesday before Golden State's nationally televised game against the Spurs. The hope remains that he will be back in the rotation by the end of the regular season April 12."
The Warriors have actually survived without Durant. They have gone 10-4 during his absence and are right on the cusp of an eight-game winning streak after the win over the Houston Rockets bannered by former Durant's former teammate, James Harden.
