Kevin Durant will reportedly suit up and play today against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The game will be Durant’s home debut in a Phoenix Suns uniform and fans are pumped up about his return to the court.
Durant tweaked his ankle during a pregame warmup weeks ago which resulted in him sitting out multiple games due to the non-contact injury. When healthy, Durant is considered one of the best to play the game.
He is currently averaging 29.7 ppg, 6.7 rpg, and 5.3 apg. At 34 years old, Durant’s scoring prowess remains on display and there are no imminent signs that his game will slow down soon.
After suffering multiple injuries in his career, Durant’s game has stayed relatively the same but there are concerns about him staying healthy night in and night out, especially in the playoffs.
The Phoenix Suns are looking to secure a top 4 seed in this year’s playoffs. He is looking to end the championship drought in Phoenix and help Devin Booker and Chris Paul win their first ring in the league this season.
If Durant plays out of his mind and stays off the injury bug for the rest of the year, then the Suns could legitimately lift that Larry O’Brien trophy in June.
