Durant had an initial timetable of four weeks before his re-evaluation, which could mean he’s in line to meet or exceed his recovery timeline. The Warriors’ leading scorer will travel with the team after being absent for the majority of the month with his rehabilitation process, according to CSN Bay Area’s Monte Poole.
The Warriors have struggled without Durant, going only 4-5 since his injury on Feb. 28 against the Washington Wizards. The team has recently escaped their long-range funk, picking up a close win against the Philadelphia 76ers and a 30-point one against the Orlando Magic.
Durant’s team-leading 25.3 points and 8.2 rebounds per game have been sorely missed, as the Warriors have put their vast lead over the San Antonio Spurs within crosshairs, sitting only a game-and-a-half ahead of their Western Conference rival.
