Durant is not the one player that has not had symptoms. Utah Jazz’s Donovan Mitchell spoke with Good Morning America Monday stating that he too has not shown any symptoms of coronavirus.
Durant has not played since the NBA Finals last season due to rupturing his Achilles. Prior to this news, given that the NBA season might make a return around May or June, there was a possibility that Durant could make a return. But now, it seems highly unlikely we will see Durant suit up any time soon.
