    Id sit KD for the entire year. We are talking about a player who can rewrite NBA history. There is no need to risk him on a season that is not gonna have them competing for a ring. Let him take the rest of the year off. And start getting him back in real basketball shape during training camp in the offseason.

    Thought he had a major injury which most players don’t bounce back from, he is mostly a shooter, which he doesn’t need levitation to get or hood shots. I personally don’t think he should come back this season. Take this time to make sure he 100% conditioned and trained to come back next season but glad to see him getting better 💪🏾

    Im absolutely sure he will return in March. I've torn my Achilles back in 2016 and it took me 9 month to get back onto the soccer pitch competetively, and I'm an Amateur. So it would be no surprise for me.

    You should do more football videos, Eden Hazard of Real Madrid tore a ligament in a tackle that seemed routine. Ousmane Dembele of Barcelona has mysteriously started tearing his hamstring chronically after being injury free for the most of his career

    I appreciate your perspective on explaining injury mechanisms/risks/medical intervention in many of your videos. However, I am disappointed that you did not bring in a member of the inter-professional team for this video, specifically a physical therapist or athletic trainer. Physical Therapists and Athletic Trainers are the ones working with these individuals and assessing and reassessing responses to treatments on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. We are constantly adjusting our plan of care to best address their impairments for return to sport. Not just return to sport, but return to performance. Bringing in a rehab specialist's perspective could have provided a better look into what Durant has been working on and towards during his training sessions beyond range of motion, strength, and muscle bulk. Disclaimer, I am a PT and often feel that our profession is overlooked.

    From a risk reward perspective it makes no sense for KD to come back. In his condition he won't be able to close the gap between Brooklyn and Indiana. Kyrie is out for an indefinite amount of time. His statistics will be all messed up as well. He should wait till summer, play for team USA and then come back 100% on basketball shape and dominate the NBA.

    If the nets were a top 4 seed, I would bring Durant back this season. The only problem is, the nets r in the hunt. They have a losing record and r not liking good this season. I would keep him out if I’m the nets, unless KD and the doctors both say he is 100%. Even then he would still be on minutes restriction.

    Sorry, perhaps I missed something, but why would Durant always have some degree of muscle atrophy or smaller size in his affected leg vs the uninjured side? Is that not something that can be eventually addressed through rehab and conditioning?
    Love your vids as always, Doc. Keep up the good work!

    PLEASE tell me hes coming back, it looks like the Nets and Raps will match in the 1st round and he can get revenge for Toronto fans cheering on his injury during the 2019 finals.

    Hey, I'm an Illinois a basketball fan. Ayo Dosumnu had a nasty fall and seemed to injure his knee. It look similar to Kyrie Irving's injury a week ago that you broke down. can you do a break down of Ayo's fall and injury?

    Theres other reasons he wouldnt return other than health related. The nets arent doing the greatest right now, might be better to hold off till next season to ensure full teams health and strength is at 100 from game 1

    reconstructed patella at 36 y.o. came back to play full speed within 5 months. Of course I'm not an NBA player but B'ball is b'ball when you player nearly every day. That's been over a decade, still working out but never regained full calf size or flexibility. Strength and game better than ever though.

    It is true that you can recover from an Achilles injury. BUT, physically you won't be the same anymore especially if your Achilles injury is a tendon tear. Once teared and you were able to recover for a year, you could no longer strain it like you used to because it now becomes tender and soft and another tear can be imminent. Meaning, KD can no longer dunk and leap high as many as he wants. KD could no longer cross over as many as he wants. And he will have to sacrifice minutes of playing in order to rest that tender Tendon in his Achilles. The safest position he can attack is through his shooting. Limit the dunking and the cross over moves. And another thing, don't chase a player from the court of origin up to the end of the court in order to reach him and block his shots (like what LeBron is doing) cause that also puts too much strain in the Achilles.
