Brooklyn Nets have big plans for Kevin Durant even though he is barely able to walk at the current moment. Durant was acquired by the Nets on the first day of free agency in a four-year, $164 million max deal. At that time, it was being questioned that what the Nets are trying to do by signing in an injured Durant.
It is no doubt that Durant is a great player and he proved that with his three-season tenure in the Golden State Warriors. The fact is how long it will take for him to fully recover from his Achilles tendon surgery. The Nets management is quiet sure that Durant will heal soon and will play in their next game against the Toronto Raptors in October.

Fans of Brooklyn Nets on Twitter are saying that since Durant’s right leg is injured, it won’t take much time as his left foot is the dominant one. Earlier this week, Durant was seen walking without any kind of crutches and it is considered as very rapid development. Before that, fans spotted him riding a scooter in the New York City.
Brooklyn Nets with Durant
Brooklyn Nets owners can’t wait to see Kevin Durant in the team jersey and enter the basketball court. Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan will be ready to join Durant and it will get much better. The Nets have other great players such as Caris LeVert, Spencer Dinwiddie, Garrett Temple, Taurean Prince and Rodions Kurucs in their roster.
If everything goes as per the plan, Durant is likely to play in the game of Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors. The match will be played on October 18, 7.30 pm at the venue of Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Uniondale, New York,
