Kevin Durant’s Absence Continues: Foot Injury Sidelines Star in New York Clash
In a highly anticipated matchup against the Knicks, the Phoenix Suns faced a setback as their star player, Kevin Durant, remained sidelined for a second consecutive game due to a bothersome right foot. This absence denied Durant his return to the New York court, a city where he previously played under the Brooklyn banner.
Despite warming up ahead of the game at Madison Square Garden, Durant’s hopes of making a comeback were dashed as the Suns made a last-minute decision to rule him out. The soreness in his foot, which sidelined him in the Suns’ victorious outing against Memphis, persisted, keeping him from taking the court against the Knicks.
Durant’s absence not only interrupted his personal return to New York but also halted his remarkable winning streak against the Knicks, a streak stretching back over a decade. He had not suffered a loss against them since April 7, 2013, boasting an impressive record of 13 consecutive wins across his tenures with Oklahoma City, Golden State, and the Nets.
Fans were eagerly anticipating Durant’s comeback to the court, especially in a matchup against the Knicks, but his foot injury continues to keep him off the hardwood, leaving fans and pundits wondering when the star will grace the court again
