Kevin Durant may be edging closer to a Warriors return

NBA bears some responsibility for games when stars aren't playing

Steve Kerr on Kevin Durant: 'He's clearly making progress'

Durant had suffered a left knee MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise during an away loss to Washington Wizards on February 28. Durant appears to be on track to return to the court ahead of the playoffs, especially after performing in shooting drills on Saturday ahead of Golden State's home game against the Bucks, which they would eventually win by a 117-92 margin.

"Durant will accompany the team on its upcoming trip to Oklahoma City and Dallas, marking his first travel since he suffered a left knee MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise on February 28".

According to ESPN.com's Chris Haynes, Durant will be with the Warriors when they depart for a two-game road trip that features back-to-back clashes with the Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks on Monday and Tuesday.

The Golden State Warriors' recent struggles - by their standards not those of normal teams - gave the Bucks plenty of reasons to be optimistic heading into Oakland, and that showed in their fast start once the game got underway.

"It's great", Kerry said prior to Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, via CSN Bay Area.

"He's clearly making progress".

Durant will be re-evaluated in 10 days time, so there will likely be a more concrete update at that point.

The 2014 MVP averaged 25.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 33.6 minutes per game over 59 games this season before he sprained his MCL and bruised his tibia against the Wizards on February 28.
