Brooklyn Nets NBA star Kevin Durant will not return to the basketball courts until next season.

Durant said he shouldn’t wait for real action when the NBA season, which was interrupted by a coronary pandemic, could possibly continue in late July.

Durant, who was awarded the Most Valuable Player of the Finals in 2017 and 2018, led the Golden State Warriors twice in a row as NBA champion. He injured the Achilles tendon of his right leg in last season’s final series, and his opponent Toronto Raptors cut the Golden State championship pipe.

- My season is over. I don’t plan on playing, ”said Durant, who moved to Brooklyn Nets last summer and won’t play a single game this season.

Durant assured that his rehabilitation is progressing well. Durant is one of 12 NBA players diagnosed with coronary infection.
