Kevin Durant is likely to miss the majority of the 2019-20 season, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Durant joined Kyrie Irving in signing with the Nets, but KD may not see the floor for the entire season. The All-Star had surgery during the NBA finals to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon he suffered during the title series. 

The best case scenario for Durant appears to be a January return with a good chance it extends longer.


A 7 ½-month rehab would put Durant’s return near the end of January. Conversely, other players have taken closer to a year to come back. The Warriors opted to handle Cousins’ rehab conservatively, and he missed a week short of a full year before debuting for Golden State in January. Brandon Jennings, whose Achilles rupture occurred a month and a half before Matthews had the same injury, didn’t return until nearly New Year’s Day, more than 11 months after the injury.

The longer timeline for Durant’s return would keep him out for the entire 2019-20 regular season, an outcome he must weigh heading into possible free agency.

In the meantime, just so you don’t have to wait,  Kevin Durant’s brother Tony showed off what his little brother’s jersey looks like. 

You know it’s going to be a while before he puts that on, or at least plays a game in it.  

Thanks Tony!
