Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant has been out since last June with a ruptured Achilles, but team broadcaster Ian Eagle believes he is healthy enough to play.
"Medically, my understanding is—from this point on—he can play," Eagle said on the YES Network (h/t Brian Lewis of the New York Post).
"It's now a question is the team comfortable, is he comfortable?
"It feels like [Durant playing in the 2019-20 season] clearly was not something that was in the cards prior to all this," Kleiman said.
Then-coach Kenny Atkinson said in January that the forward returning this season was "not going to happen," per Lewis.
