The Suns organization is worried about the health of Kevin Durant.
After slipping during warm-ups it has now been revealed Durant might miss the rest of the regular season.
If he is still not good in four weeks then he will miss the start of the playoffs.
Kevin Durant’s ankle injury reportedly has the Phoenix Suns concerned that he could miss the remainder of the regular season.
There is concern within the Suns organization that Durant has a Grade 2 sprain, which would keep him out between four and six weeks, according to The Arizona Republic.
If Durant is out for more than four weeks, he could potentially miss the start of the playoffs, which begin on April 15.
Durant — who was traded from the Nets to the Suns at the Feb. 9 trade deadline — left Footprint Center in a large walking boot.

This is a major blow to the Suns who would have liked to use this time to get Durant healthy.
