“#Nets’ Kevin Durant: I likely would have skipped NBA restart if healthy”
“I feel, me right now, I probably wouldn’t have played because the unknown going into that situation looks crazy right now, seeing so many new cases,” Durant said Thursday on the Dawg Talk podcast. “It’s just so unpredictable. It’s easy for me to say right now because I’m injured, but I probably wouldn’t have went down there [to Orlando].”
Twenty-two teams — including the Nets — will pick up the NBA’s postponed season at the end of July at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla.
A number of players, such as Avery Bradley of the Lakers, Trevor Ariza of the Trail Blazers and Davis Bertans of the Wizards, have announced they don’t plan on taking part. The NBA said on Friday that 16 of 302 players tested are positive for the virus. The state of Florida continues to see a rise in people testing positive for coronavirus, reporting 9,000 new cases on Friday. In mid-March, Durant tested positive, mere days after the season was suspended.
