New NBA COVID Protocol; Kevin Durant’s Return after Torn Achilles’

Steve Kashul and Dr. Cole discuss the protocol for COVID safety with return of the NBA season; Kevin Durant’s recovery and return to play after suffering an Achilles’ tendon injury.

Kevin Durant, the Nets star, is healthy and ready to play N.B.A. basketball — or at least, as healthy as he’ll ever be, he told reporters in a news conference last week.

“Every drill that I’ve done, I’ve been going as hard as I could,” Durant said in one of his first comments to reporters since last year.

He added, with an expletive: “I mean, I’ve been in the league for 14 years. Even if I didn’t have an Achilles’, I probably wouldn’t be 100 percent, you know? So the wear and tear over time, I guess, but I feel solid.”
