Durant knee injury, what does the head coach’s smile mean?
Durant (Brooklyn) is out of the game due to an unexpected knee injury. However, Brooklyn coach Jacques Bonn, who gave an official interview after the game, smiled. What does it mean?
The Brooklyn Nets won 102-101 in the 2022-2023 NBA regular league away game against the Miami Heat at the FTX Arena in Miami, Florida on the 8th. Brooklyn, the second-ranked team in the Eastern Conference, which has been on the rise of 17 wins and 2 losses in the last 19 games, reduced its win over the No. 1 Boston Celtics to one game.
I’m glad I won, but it was a bad match for Brooklyn. Durant collided with Jimmy Butler, who landed after a shot attempt during the game, and was shocked in his right knee in the process. In the end, Durant was away throughout the fourth quarter.
Evan Jeffries, a physical therapist who heard Durant’s injury, said on his personal SNS, “There seems to be something wrong with the MCL (internal ligament).” It is similar to the knee injuries he suffered twice,” he said.
It’s a heartbreaking story for Durant’s fans. Durant was absent for a long time in the middle of last season due to an internal ligament sprain in his left knee. Durant has missed 21 games since his injury and made his comeback about two months later.
Of course, it was only a finding after only seeing the injury scene. Durant’s exact physical condition can be confirmed through a precise diagnosis. “I didn’t ask Durant about his condition,” Bon said in an interview with local media after the game. “I think we should check it through a thorough diagnosis,” he said.
What was noteworthy was the attitude that director Bon took in the interview. “It should be noted that Coach Bon had an interview with a bright expression,” said Tim Reynolds, a reporter for ‘AP News.’ “I couldn’t have smiled like that if there was bad news about Durant,” he said. Robin Lundberg, the host of ‘Sports Illustrated,’ also said, “Coach Bon looked happy after the game. “I hope Durant’s knee injury is also minor,” he said.
Durant led Brooklyn’s rise with an average of 29.7 points (55.9% fielding rate) and 6.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.5 block shots this season. He was seriously mentioned as a regular league MVP candidate. Durant’s absence is bound to be a fatal variable for Brooklyn. 안전놀이터
Will Durant be able to shake off his injury and return as Bonn smiled? Brooklyn will play a home game against Boston, the top player in the Eastern Conference, on the 13th.
