Speaking to Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report, Kevin Durant (torn Achilles) confirmed that he will not play this season.
"NO! No. The best thing for me is to continue the rehab, get as strong as I can and focus on next season," said Durant. There has been some speculation that KD would get back on the floor this year after he was spotted getting shots up, but him sitting out the entire season is the most sensible call for everyone involved. Durant shouldn't be on any redraft rosters to begin with, and dynasty and keeper GMs now have confirmation on what's been expected all along. It will be interesting to see how Durant looks upon returning from such a serious injury, and he'll be one of the riskier names at play in next season's drafts considering his likely ADP.
