Durant returns to Nets after 23-game absence
NEW YORK (AP) Kevin Durant returned to the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night after missing 23 games with a strained left achilles tendon.
Durant was originally on the starting line-up against New Orleans, but the Nets updated the line-up to remove Durant minutes before the game.
That left Durant off the bench in his first since February 13 in the Golden State. He and the Nets initially thought his injury was minor, but subsequent testing showed it was more serious.
Coach Steve Nash said the Nets would be careful with Durant on his return and did not plan to send him to play for 35 minutes.
Durant returned a day after the Nets announced that James Harden would be sidelined for at least the next 10 days with his own hamstring injury. Brooklyn has had its all-star trio of Durant, Harden, and Kyrie Irving together for just seven games.
