NYU orthopedist on Kevin Durant: ‘He should do fine’

Brian Lewis spoke this week with one of New York’s top orthopedists and Dr. Laith Jazrawi, chief of the division of sports medicine at NYU Langone Sports Health, thinks Kevin Durant is likely to “do just fine” when he returns.

“He’s not an old guy, 36, 37 towards the end of his career,” said Dr. Jazrawi. “I don’t think it’s like that in him. He’ll do just fine. I don’t see any issue to say he won’t be as good of a player as he was a year-and-a-half ago.”
