OAKLAND — The Warriors practice opened up on Saturday afternoon and the curtain was lowered. Kevin Durant, on an adjacent court, took part in a scrimmage with some of his teammates purposely out of view of reporters.

Minutes earlier, Durant went through a full practice for the first time since his knee injury a month back. But it was a very light practice.

“We didn’t do much,” Kerr said. “Walk through for tomorrow because we don’t have a shootaround. Then about 20-25 minutes of station work for some offensive execution. But it was not exactly strenuous.”

So Durant clearly wanted to test it more. Which led to the post-practice, closed-off scrimmage, in which Durant engaged in his most physical, game-like action since the injury. He will not play in Sunday’s game against the Wizards and is unlikely for the Tuesday, Wednesday back-to-back against the Timberwolves and Suns.

But three games remain after that and there’s increasing optimism he will return before the Warriors’ regular season ends. The playoffs are just under two weeks away. Durant’s injury occurred nearly five weeks ago.
