Kevin Durant was on fire Wednesday, scoring a season-high 50 points on 17-of-27 field goals and 10-of-10 free throws with seven rebounds, six assists and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
His heel went out of bounds on a 3-pointer that would have brought the Warriors within one point with 8.8 seconds left, but on a night when his teammates were struggling, Durant was a one-man wrecking crew. He even made consecutive four-point plays during an 18-point outburst in the third quarter, giving him 13 such plays in his auspicious career. This is the most he's scored with the Warriors, and his highest-scoring game since 2014, sending fantasy owners into the All-Star break smiling. Feb 15 - 1:29 AM

Kevin Durant played 30 minutes and hit 8-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, seven rebounds, six assists and two blocks in Monday's ridiculous 129-83 blowout of the Suns.

You may have heard of NBA TV's players only feature that has trickled down to TNT, but tonight it was the coach's version of players only, as Steve Kerr let his players coach the game. And that should tell you how scared Kerr was of the Suns. Steph Curry added 22 points, nine boards, seven assists and three 3-pointers and Klay Thompson had 16 points and two 3-pointers on a night Draymond Green was out with a sprained left index finger. There are blowouts and then there was this game.
Feb 13 - 12:47 AM

Kevin Durant ended up with just 10 points, six rebounds and six assists over 29 minutes in Saturday's 122-105 win against the Spurs.

The overall line wasn't terrible, but he was just 3-of-9 from the field, including 0-of-1 from behind the 3-point arc. KD was able to help out with two blocked shots, too, so it wasn't a total loss. However, he'll look to get back on track Monday against Phoenix, the worst defensive team in the NBA. Perhaps Durant's hand was still bothering him a bit, causing him to miss shots he'd normally make.
Feb 10 - 11:52 PM

Kevin Durant scored 24 points with nine rebounds, four assists, two blocks, one steal and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

He did not turn the ball over and was the steady hand of the first unit -- all other starters had at least two. Durant's hand was also the story coming into this game after a minor injury to put him on the injury report, but there was never any doubt he'd play. The Warriors aren't playing their best right now, so maybe Durant tries to put the team on his back more often. Plus, it's not likely the Warriors rest their players too often, so his fantasy value is looking good.
Feb 9 - 1:13 AM

Kevin Durant (hand) is good to go vs. Dallas on Thursday.

He was called questionable today with the Warriors putting a lot of players on their injury report. Durant's hand injury is not considered serious and expect him to dominate against a struggling Dallas defense.
Feb 8 - 2:02 PM

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) is questionable to play Thursday against the Mavericks.

This seems like an extremely minor issue for KD, but with a matchup against the 17-37 Mavericks, it wouldn't be all that shocking if he were to hit the sidelines. If Durant sits out Thursday's game, it'll either be Andre Iguodala or Omri Casspi drawing the start, with more minutes falling to Nick Young and Draymond Green (dental work). Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson would also see a spike in usage.

Kevin Durant hit 8-of-14 shots, 3-of-8 3-pointers and 14-of-15 free throws on his way to 33 points, six rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 30 minutes of Tuesday's 125-105 loss to the Thunder.

Stephen Curry had 21 points and a full stat line, and Klay Thompson added 12 points and two 3-pointers in the blowout loss. The Thunder came out on fire in this one and Russell Westbrook appeared to be motivated after a hard foul from Patrick McCaw in the first quarter, and then torched the Dubs for 20-plus points in the opening stanza. Most of the Warriors starters sat for most of the fourth quarter and this was the first time they have lost two straight games this season, and they've now lost three of their last four. But they still have the best record in the league at 41-13.
Feb 7 - 1:41 AM

Kevin Durant scored 31 points with six rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one turnover in 42 minutes against the Nuggets during a 115-108 loss on Saturday.

It was a great offensive game from KD, but the Warriors defense completely fell apart in the fourth. They gave up 38 points in the fourth quarter and it's fair to chalk this up to a schedule loss on a back-to-back in altitude. Despite the possible concern about the Warriors, KD scored 30 points in consecutive games for the first time since December. This loss could be good news for his value because the Rockets are now just 2.0 games back and the Rockets do have the tiebreaker. KD gets a revenge game against OKC on Tuesday, so his stat line should be sweeter than a cupcake.
Feb 3 - 11:43 PM

Kevin Durant finished Friday's game at Sacramento with a game-high 33 points across 37 minutes.

Durant hit 12-of-17 from the field, including an impressive 6-of-7 from behind the 3-point line. He also chipped in with six assists and four rebounds. Perhaps the most noteworthy part of Durant's fantasy stat line was that it was his first time this season going back-to-back games without a blocked shot. He'll look to get back on track in the blocks department on Saturday in Denver.
Feb 3 - 1:13 AM

Kevin Durant made 7-of-18 from the field for 20 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

It looked like coach Brad Stevens tried to take KD away, and it worked with Durant turning in one of his worst games this month. His passing also fell off in a big way after his 25 over the last two while also averaging 6.9 per game in his previous January games. Durant is in the mix to be the best player in nine-category leagues going forward.
Jan 27 - 11:44 PM

Kevin Durant (foot) will play on Saturday vs. the Celtics.

No surprise here and he was called probable. Interestingly, coach Steve Kerr said he didn't even know Durant was on the injury report. Expect him to dominate as he goes for his third straight with 10-plus dimes.
Jan 27 - 6:54 PM

Kevin Durant (left foot soreness) is probable to face the Celtics on Saturday.

This foot soreness thing didn't limit him too much on Thursday with a 28-point triple-double. Durant has been fantastic as a shooter and there's little reason to think he won't be playing in the national TV game. For what it's worth, KD's right foot was the one he had surgery on back in his OKC days.
Jan 26 - 5:57 PM

Kevin Durant dropped his second triple-double of the season during a 126-113 win over the Wolves on Thursday, scoring 28 points with 10 rebounds, 11 assists, three blocks, two steals and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

It's the first time in his NBA career that he had double-digit dimes in consecutive games after his career-high 14 helpers on Tuesday. Durant has also been ridiculous as a shooter since he returned from injury eight games ago, averaging 26.3 points, 6.3 boards, 7.5 dimes, 1.4 steals, 1.3 blocks and 3.4 treys on a 69.7 TS% and a 27.6 usage rate. That includes a 64.5 eFG% on his 100 jumpers in that span while he's only been blocked twice on his 133 attempts overall in this stretch, as well. LeBron James made him the first pick in the All-Star Team draft and it's easy to see why.
Jan 26 - 1:32 AM

Kevin Durant has been fined $15k for criticizing the referees on Tuesday.

Durant apologized for his behavior on Wednesday which may have earned him some lenience in the fine. He is already up to 10 technicals this season, which is an issue fantasy owners should keep an eye on down the stretch -- once he hits 16 he'll start facing mandatory suspensions.
Jan 25 - 6:52 PM

Kevin Durant was ejected with two technicals on Tuesday vs. the Knicks, finishing with 14 points, a career-high 14 assists, four rebounds, two steals, two blocks and five turnovers in 32 minutes.

That's his fourth ejection of the season and 10th technical -- once he hits 16 he will get an automatic one-game suspension. KD vented some frustration to the officials before getting tossed, but there was only 2:50 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Warriors were up by 18 at the time. He finished 4-of-10 from the field and hit all four free throws, helping the Warriors bounce back from their loss to Houston on Saturday.
