“Durant will continue to strengthen his knee and will begin running and playing basketball on the court this week. He is expected to be re-evaluated in two weeks,” the team said in a statement Tuesday.

There’s optimism in Nets circles he could come back early and make the All-Star Game on Feb. 19, Athleticism reported. However, Durant himself has said he tries not to rush into the action, even if he wants to play.

“I want to play tomorrow” he said.
