No Minutes Restriction Placed on Kevin Durant


Kevin Durant participated in a full practice session Friday and said he’s “excited to go out there” and make his return after missing the last five weeks with a knee injury.

“Today was one of those days where I went out there and played, and practiced with the guys and I felt normal,” said Durant, who will return to the Golden State Warriors’ lineup Saturday against the New Orleans Pelicans. “I’ve been waiting for that feeling for a couple of weeks now.”

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after consulting with the training staff, there will not be a minutes restriction placed Durant since his knee is completely healed.
