Durant previously said when talking about Irving’s impending return: “I don’t know the specifics of that incident, I think I should know, because I’m a member of this team, but because I’ve been focused on the away game before. Brigade. I’m sure when we get home things will sort themselves out and hopefully that day will come soon.”
“I haven’t spoken to Irving about the return in the past few days, and I haven’t spoken to Marks and Tsai Chongxin about it. But we’re all looking forward to his return.”
Durant responded to the news that Irving is expected to return next Monday: “It’s going to be exciting for everybody, I mean we miss Irving, we miss his presence on the court. The spark was the team really needs him.”
