Kevin Durant Cleared for Full-Team Practices

The Warriors are about to become whole again.

On Thursday morning, Golden State issued the following press release:

"Following multiple workout sessions in recent days – including 2-on-2, 3-on-3 and 4-on-4 scrimmages – forward Kevin Durant has been cleared by the team's medical and athletic training staffs to return to full-team practices.  

"If he does not suffer any setbacks following tomorrow's practice, it is anticipated that Durant will play in Saturday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans at Oracle Arena.

"Durant has missed the last 19 games after suffering a Grade 2 left MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise against the Washington Wizards on February 28."

Through his first 59 games this season, Durant averaged 25.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.1 steals, while shooting just under 54 percent from the field.

After dropping five of their first seven games without him, the Warriors have won 13 in a row.
