Steve Kerr denies that Kevin Durant is unhappy with Warriors’ doctors.
Kevin Durant has yet to comment publicly about whether he feels he was misled by the Golden State Warriors’ medical staff, but head coach Steve Kerr says he has no reason to believe that is the case. NBA reporter Ric Bucher said this week that Durant is still unsure if he was misled about being able to suffer a more significant injury by playing before his calf was 100 percent healed. In an appearance on Tim Kawakami’s “The TK Show” podcast Wednesday, Kerr said he has not gotten that impression and noted that Durant’s own specialist also cleared him to play.
