After spending the day with his family, Kevin Durant and LeBron James are headed home for a weekend of family time.
So far, it seems like the two have gotten to know each other well and have grown closer.
The Golden State Warriors superstar has been spending time with Durant during the NBA Finals.
And LeBron James, after spending a few days with his son, will be heading back to the court this weekend to participate in a charity game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks.
In recent weeks, Durant has been working to get a knee brace for his injured left knee and to get back on the court.
So much so, that he even took the opportunity to share some of his thoughts on his knee brace and the surgery.
During a recent appearance on the ESPN Radio show “The Ticket,” Durant spoke about the surgery he had.
He talked about the swelling and the swelling in his knee and how the swelling was so bad that he had to take a week off of basketball.
“I had to go into the rehabilitation program and basically, the last thing I wanted to do was hurt anybody or put anybody in danger,” Durant said.
And it took me three or four weeks,” he added. “
I was going through a couple of weeks where I was just trying to get it out and get it under control and be able to get out of here.”
“And it took me three or four weeks,” he added.
“I was just in pain.”
Durant’s knee has been a source of great frustration for fans and media alike.
It was recently announced that the NBA was considering mandating that players undergo a knee injury evaluation every two years.
And last week, it was reported that Durant will miss at least the rest of the playoffs.
Durant also admitted to feeling discomfort when he was taking part in a basketball game.
“Sometimes you just can’t control the situation.
And sometimes you have to let things happen,” Durant told the outlet.
“And sometimes you just feel like, ‘Man, I don’t know what to do.
What do I do?'”
The Cavs’ win over the Bucks came after Durant had a brief stint on the bench last night.
The veteran guard went scoreless in the first half, but returned to the bench in the second quarter to help the Cavaliers beat the Bucks.
While Durant didn’t comment on whether he had a procedure or surgery on his right knee, he did say that it was painful.
“It’s definitely painful,” Durant explained.
“But it’s something I have to deal with, I’m going to have to figure out how to handle it and what I need to do, but I feel good.”
“I have been able to sit down and talk with my wife and my family about it and get my knee adjusted and get back out on the floor,” he continued.
“It’s just really hard, I just don’t want to say it, but it’s really hard.”
But it definitely didn’t hurt.
It definitely wasn’t uncomfortable.
