Kevin Durant ‘probably wouldn’t have played’ at Disney if he was fully healthy — Nets Wire

Kevin Durant recently ruled himself out for the remainder of the 2019-20 NBA season after having done so earlier in the year, before the league was forced to go on hiatus due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

But it turns out the guard likely wouldn’t have played in Disney if he was at full strength.

During an interview on the “Dawg Talk” podcast, Durant explained why he wouldn’t have played:

I feel, me right now, I probably wouldn’t have played because the unknown going into that situation looks crazy right now, seeing so many new cases. It’s just so unpredictable. It’s easy for me to say right now because I’m injured, but I probably wouldn’t have went down there.

However, Durant is fine with some players deciding to go through with the resumption of the season. And he would’ve discussed his decision with others to hear the other side of the argument, too. But deep down, Durant does not think he would’ve elected to play.

If the guys feel safe enough to go play, that’s cool, I’m with them. If they don’t feel like they should go down there and play or don’t feel safe, I’m with them, too. I’m all about what the group wants. If it’s good for the betterment of the whole group, then I’m cool with it. I probably would have chilled.

Nah, I probably would have chilled. Obviously, I would have talked to my teammates and consulted with my guys and actually really went over it for the last month and a half, but me, my gut would have told me ‘nah,’ I probably wouldn’t want to go down there, especially after three months off.
