The devastating Achilles injury Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant suffered Monday night in Toronto has brought about a major debate around the NBA world.
Did the Warriors rush Durant back? Was he diagnosed with the correct injury over a month ago? So many questions come to mind at a time like this.
While it’s foolish to draw conclusions even before a firm diagnosis has been made, that’s the name of the game in 2019.
Though, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had a really strong and even-keeled take on the situation. Simply put, the NBA and Players Association need to invest more on the prevention and research of Achilles injuries.
