But that was before the NBA season could extend into August due the coronavirus outbreak.

Which I think partially explains Rich Kleiman’s answer.
Durant doesn’t want to build anticipation for his return. If he does, fans would only be disappointed if he’s not ready. It’s better to keep expectations low then exceed them.
So, maybe Durant is gearing up for a return this season. Maybe he’s not. Either way, I’d expect the same response from Kleiman.
As a result, this will only quiet – not silence – speculation.
