Kevin Durant was seen at morning shootaround earlier Thursday morning getting shots up for the first time since he injured his left ankle in pregame warmups last Tuesday. Since then, the Suns have lost 3 of their last 4 games.
Ahead of tonight’s game against the Orlando Magic, head coach Monty Williams gave an update on how Durant is doing and where he’s at with his rehab before he’s eligible to return to the floor.
“Anytime you can get KD back on the court, it’s great. It’s good seeing him out there.”
Williams understands the importance that Durant to the team, but he made sure to let the media know that they’re trying to do right by Durant to not put him in harm’s way before he comes back.
“We want him to be healthy, we want him to get right. It’s all about taking the right steps and making sure he does the right things and is taking the precautions to have him out there and stay healthy.”
