Kevin Durant won't play in NBA game for more than a year, but he's not letting that dampen his mood.
Nearly two weeks after having surgery to repair his right Achilles tendon, Durant is up and roaming around New York City with the assistance of knee walker.
Tony Durant, Kevin's brother, posted that image Tuesday evening of them walking around SoHo.
Immediately after the Golden State Warriors lost to the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 NBA Finals, Durant flew to New York City and had Dr. Martin O'Malley perform the Achilles surgery.
With the start of free agency days away, rumors have started swirling about Durant's mindset as he approaches his big decision.
On Monday, Bleacher Report's Ric Bucher reported that Durant was "pissed" with the Warriors for their role in his injury. But a day later, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that there is no breakdown between Durant and the Warriors.

Based on the new image, Durant looks pretty happy.
We'll find out in the next few days if Durant will bring that smile back to the Bay Area for the next five years or if it will stay in New York City for the next four years.
