When will Kevin Durant play? Potential dates for Suns debut after blockbuster trade from Nets

The reality that Kevin Durant is a member of the Suns may have materialized by now, but his debut remains on hold.

Durant, who posted MVP numbers in his first 39 games this season, has been out since Jan. 8 with an MCL sprain he sustained while a member of the Nets. In the weeks since Phoenix won a two-time Finals MVP, anticipation has grown for his first game in a Suns uniform.

After the All-Star break, the Suns (32-28) have 22 regular season games left to work their way up the Western Conference rankings.

While Phoenix will certainly tread carefully with its 34-year-old superstar. The sooner Durant gets on the lineup the better as they will look to build chemistry and win games ahead of the postseason.

When will Durant speak for the Suns? Here’s what we know about his potential debut.


When will Kevin Durant debut for the Suns?

Durant has been out for a month but appears to be nearing his return to action.

At the NBA All-Star Media Day, Durant told reporters that his knee felt “tight,” but declined to say whether or not he would play in Phoenix’s first game after the break on Friday, Feb. 24.

It’s worth noting that the Suns’ Feb. 24 meeting with the Thunder has been moved to a national telecast at 10:00 p.m. ET on ESPN. The move to televise Friday’s game on national television could come in anticipation of Durant’s debut.
