When will Kevin Durant and the Thunder catch a break this season? It is a simple question, but one that needs to be looked at. If this was Derrick Rose and the Bulls, it would be a different story, but Durant doesn’t have the injury issues that Rose has had in his career. It has boiled down to being a season filled with bad luck and inconsistencies, and it might end when the regular season comes to a close.
General Manager Sam Presti has probably not needed to work out lately because of the amount of running around he has had to do in his head after all of these injuries to his team. It almost seems unfair that the Thunder have had to continue dealing with injury after injury during the 2014-2015 season.
This team is one of the most talented teams in the NBA, and they are young. With that being said, it wouldn’t be a shock to me if they began to worry about their young superstars going forward. In fact, with today’s press conference regarding Kevin Durant, I think the Thunder have already begun to worry about them.
The Oklahoma City Thunder held a press conference earlier today, and GM Sam Presti told those in attendance, “But unless he’s able to be back on the floor without soreness, he won’t be back on the floor.”
Does this mean that we won’t see Durant for the rest of the season?
Quite possibly, and it might extend even longer. Even if the Thunder make it into the NBA Playoffs, there is no guarantee that Durant will play; it all depends on if he still is experiencing soreness in his foot. With the amount of injuries that the Thunder have faced this season, I think that this is a smart move by Oklahoma City.
If Kevin Durant does not suit up for the rest of the season and the playoffs, expect him to be ripping the hearts out of teams in his contract year next year.
If a “Durantula” is put on the shelf for an extended period of time, it will not take long before it will attack ferociously and with the intent to kill.
