Well, the streaking team in the NBA is about to get their stud back. One of them, at least.
Story going online now: Golden State is targeting Saturday’s home date with New Orleans for Kevin Durant’s return, league sources say.

Reports are that the Warriors are planning on Saturday for Kevin Durant to return to the lineup, giving him two tune up games to get ready for the postseason.

The original prognosis for Durant was that he would miss the first round, and this will beat those estimates by almost a month.

This is also big because Durant will now have some time to get right, rather than trying to adjust in a second round matchup.

The Warriors have been stellar without Durant, and if he can come in and add to it, the Warriors will no doubt be the favorite again.
