Nets Broadcaster Ian Eagle: Kevin Durant Medically Cleared After Achilles Injury

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.
