Free Sacramento Kings vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
For as strong as the Phoenix has looked with Durant, the Suns need him on the floor so his teammates can mesh with him and solidify their system heading into the playoffs.
KD will be reassessed in two (to three) weeks which means he’ll miss at least seven games in total and should he return in the very next game that would give Monty Williams just 10 games to iron out any kinks.
In realty it’s not so much Durant that needs time — it’s his teammates who aren’t used to playing with him. More importantly, his absence could impact seeding and facing teams like the Kings who lead Phoenix by 2.5 games that could be significant.
