The latest Kevin Durant injury update suggests that the marquee scorer desires to return for his team before the 2023 All-Star break. This also means that Durant will be making his first appearance in the star-studded exhibition game for the first time since 2019.

“That would be a nice target point for me I guess, is the few games before the (All-Star game) to get my legs back under me,” Durant said on his podcast, the ETCs. “That’s in an ideal situation, then slide into the All-Star break back healthy, back on the floor.”
