Kevin Durant was in a somber mood after bone graft surgery. Here’s what he posted on his Instagram account:
Not what I envisioned coming into this season. But I'm here and ready to conquer this journey. I've heard it all over the last few weeks, but I'm not here to prove anything to anybody, im battling myself. When quit and negativity are staring me in my face, i will stay strong and disciplined. And I won't do it on my own, my closest and friends and family are here to help and that's something I will be forever grateful for. I appreciate all the well wishes from all of you guys, I appreciate it. This is just a small obstacle when I look at the big picture. THANKS TO ALL MY NBA BROTHERS THAT REACHED OUT, means a lot to me. Road to recovery. GO THUNDER, I can't wait to play with my teammates again. LETS DO THIS
Durant is out for the rest of the season, and will need 4-to-6 months to recover. Last season’s MVP appeared in just 27 games, with averages of 25.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists.
