OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant has been cleared for non-contact basketball drills and could return from his knee injury before the end of the regular season.

The Warriors said Wednesday that Durant will be re-evaluated in the next seven to 10 days as he recovers from a left knee and leg injury that has sidelined him since Feb. 28. The NBA regular season ends in two weeks.

The team says Durant has made good progress in his recovery and has had no setbacks. He has started shooting, running and jumping drills and will soon start doing more explosive cutting and lateral maneuvers. His return to contact drills and practice will be determined by how he handles these workouts.
