Kevin Durant "has made very good progress" in his recovery from the knee sprain and bone bruise that he suffered against the Wizards on Feb. 28, and the Warriors say their star could see the court before their regular season concludes on April 12.
"At this point, he is being incorporated into non-contact basketball drills — shooting, running and jumping — and the plan is to intensify his level of movement over the next several days," Golden State announced in a press release. "A return to game action prior to the end of the regular season remains a possibility."
ESPN's Marc Stein tweeted Wednesday that it looks like Durant could suit up for the Warriors' last three contests of the year, all of which are at home and the first of which is on April 8. That is assuming he doesn't experience any setbacks.
Steph Curry and Co. looked out of sorts immediately following Durant's injury, but have since steadied themselves. The ultra-skilled forward is averaging 25.3 points per game on 53-percent field goal shooting for the NBA's top team.
The Wizards will face the Warriors one more time before the postseason begins. That matchup will happen this Sunday in Oakland.
