The Nets superstar will be coming in just time with the playoffs approaching as the Nets surge to qualify for them begins.

Since KD has been out the Brooklyn Nets have been struggling and have found themselves in the lower part of the Eastern Conference which has caused major concern.

Steve Nash talked about the return of KD and he said, Every day closer, We’ll see. I expect in the next week he’ll be back for sure. It could be quick; it could be the whole week barring any setbacks.”

He added, I think with Kevin he’s been a great healer throughout his career, So the No. 1 thing is to get him back healthy and feeling secure in his health and his body so he can move and be free. When he’s back, obviously he adds a ton to our team on both ends of the floor … one of the greatest scorers of all time. And we also know he helps us defensively; he gives us more size and length. So he’s a big miss for us, and whenever he gets back, he’ll impact our team.”

Steve Nash also gave updates about Ben Simmons along with Kevin Durant

Talking about the availability of Ben Simmons, the Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash said, “He’s not gone to high intensity yet, Just ramping him up still.”

He added, It’s not like an injury, It’s just kind of like as he’s returning to play his back’s flared up a little bit. It’s not a long-term thing.”

When the whole crew of the Brooklyn Nets will be back in action we will be able to see why they are still the favorites to win the NBA Championship this season.
