Basketball: ‘My Season is over …will not play again,’ declares Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant announced that he will not take part in 2019/20 Basketball season when it resumes in July.

Speaking to The Undefeated, the 31-year old announced that he will not feature for the Brooklyn Nets when the season resumes.

My season is over. I don’t plan on playing at all. We decided last summer when it first happened that I was just going to wait until the following season. I had no plans of playing at all this season.

Durant ruptured an achilles tendon a year ago for Golden State in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against Toronto and has not played a NBA game since June 10, 2019.

The injury also marked the end of the 2014 MVP stay in San Francisco as he departed and joined the Nets as a free agent in summer last year.

Durant also revealed that he was one of the first NBA stars to contract COVID-19 this year and, with a lack of match fitness, has ruled himself out of making a return should the season return.

NBA are considering the possibility of resuming the current calendar at Disney World in late July.

The season was suspended back in Mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic. At the time, the season was five weeks away to culmination.

The plan would see the league hold games at one site – the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
