Kevin Durant #35 of Team LeBron is interviewed for the upcoming 2018 NBA All-Star game during Media Day at the Verizon Up Arena at LACC on February 17, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

Durant shared a picture of himself in the hospital after the procedure, which was successful.

This all in turn makes teams who were not in the running to sign him initially and who might be more willing and capable of taking a slower approach, much more plausible a destination than they ever were in the past - making the Phoenix Suns specifically a sudden possibility to sign the now limping Kevin Durant.

Durant had returned to the court for the Warriors for the first time in over a month and looked every bit the potent superstar scorer he was prior to the calf strain that has plagued his postseason.

"Now, would we go back and do it over again?"

Kerr said he also understands people wanting to point blame somewhere, though he noted, "Kevin checked all the boxes, and he was cleared to play by everybody involved", including doctors from within the organization and from the outside.

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant underwent surgery Wednesday to fix a ruptured Achilles tendon he suffered during Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Of course, Durant might not want to spend next season in Golden State then become a free agent in 2020.

"Over the years, the last few years, there have been questions about who he is as a person", Wanda said, "After they questioned him about an injury and faking an injury, using an injury for his benefit, I felt that was really harsh because that compromised or talked about his character, and his integrity and I know that's not who my son is". Teammate DeMarcus Cousins returned in January almost a year after rupturing his left Achilles tendon and undergoing surgery last season while with New Orleans.

The star forward said "Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that's what I do. And he just told me he was going to be okay and don't worry". You see how hard he took it, talking to you guys after the game. They're a part of our game, and they're going to continue to be a part of our game.
