With the dust seemingly settled from the Phoenix Suns’ big move, there is one question on the minds of every Suns fan, and likely Monty Williams.
It has been nearly two weeks since the trade shook the NBA and potentially reset the pecking order in the Western Conference. Since then, TJ Warren has debuted for the Suns, Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges have played three games for Brooklyn, and Jae Crowder is now on his third team. However, the deal’s centerpiece, which cost the Suns the twins and more, has not played. Thus the question on every Suns fan’s mind is when will we see Kevin Durant?
Different messages from different sources on Durant’s Suns’ debut
Durant was injured back on January 9, spraining his MCL, and has been out of action ever since, and depending on who you listen to and believe, KD could be returning at several different points in the next week.
On Wednesday, Brian Windhorst was on ESPN saying that the most likely scenario would be Durant debuting at Milwaukee on Sunday, the first game of a four-game road trip.
However, as the day progressed, the common belief seemed to change as a new report surfaced. According to Shams Charania, Durant will debut at Charlotte in the middle of Phoenix’s next road trip on March 1. Phoenix’s new superstar will be out for another week, missing Milwaukee and Oklahoma City before turning.
