Kevin Durant can return when he’s healthy, says NBA commissioner Adam Silver
NBA commissioner Adam Silver has confirmed that Kevin Durant will bring Brooklyn Nets to justice if he is healthy.
Durant joined the Nets last summer after three years with the Golden State Warriors. The organization signed him knowing that he would likely miss the 2019/20 season due to the Achilles injury he suffered against the Toronto Raptors in the final. However, since the season is continuing into the year due to the COVID 19 pandemic, he could make a return when the season starts in Orlando again.
Silver spoke to the cast of In the NBA (H / T. Yahoo Sports) on Thursday evening – according to news from the Supreme Council of the League Approval of a 22 team format for the campaign to resume – and stated that Durant can play if he is fit enough to fit his team.
“We will allow it. And I would just say Charles [Barkley]that this was the back and forth with our teams. There is so much here that is not fair and we are choosing from several bad alternatives given the (coronavirus) pandemic we are dealing with. … I think if a team has a healthy squad and these players can return, they are ultimately eligible to play. “
Chances of winning for the networks that won the title have been reduced due to the possibility of Kevin Durant’s return
Caesars sports betting Chances of winning the Nets title have been reduced from 750-1 to 60-1 prior to the approval announcement, simply because both Durant and Kyrie Irving could play again when the NBA resumes next month. Irving had arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in February and hasn’t played since.
The networks took seventh place in the Eastern Conference before the NBA ended the season on March 11.
