NEW YORK-Kevin Durant (Kevin Durant) since February injured a hamstring injury, the first public comment was made this Thursday.
Rapaport posted a private message, saying that Durant had sent him emails-including threatening language, anti-gay and misogynistic remarks.
Coach Steve Nash said that the organization communicated with Durant in the language used in the communication.
Durant said on Thursday that he apologized to fans and the public for seeing the profanity back and forth.
Durant said: “I’m sorry, people saw the language I use.” “This is not what I really want people to see and hear me, but I hope I can go over it and go back to the floor.”
Durant also told reporters about his recovery and the time he left the court. Durant said he now feels “great” and is about to return to court.
He said: “My progress is very good.” “I look forward to being with my teammates soon.”
Nash said he “doubts” Durant will play against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday or the New York Knicks on Monday.
Durant said that his rehabilitation work is making great progress, but there are still some obstacles that need to be resolved before he returns to court. Durant has been absent from the game since February 13. He said he is happy to reintegrate into the Nets lineup. Since his departure, the Nets have attracted several key players. Nash said Durant still needs to do some work under “heavy loads” before he is considered safe to return.
Durant said he felt he had been out of court “too long.”
Durant said: “At first, I didn’t think it was that bad, it was just regular fatigue.” “Then we performed a second scan and they found that the depth of the scan was deeper than this. This is why I didn’t feel much pain But you don’t want to force one of them to get injured and go out and make the situation worse.”
He continued: “In my opinion, it’s like,’Man, you have to be alert and cautious about this type of injury.’ So please be patient and try my best to fix it.”
Durant said that when he was injured, he felt like James Harden and Kyrie Irving were just beginning to figure out how to engage. The trio only played 7 games in total. Since then, Brooklyn has added veteran big men LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin to the roster.
Durant said of Griffin and Aldridge: “I look forward to playing with them.” Griffin and Aldridge started the game when they made their debut in Brooklyn on Thursday. “A lot of people in the league have experienced a lot in the league and look forward to another opportunity to chase something special with us.”
Durant has missed the Nets’ past 21 games. He averaged 29 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game this season.
