Kevin Durant (ankle) said he's "good" from his ankle issue on Thursday night, and he will play on Sunday.

"It’s nothing," KD said. "It was a quick roll. It didn’t completely turn. I’m fine." He did go to the locker room just before the game ended, but the Warriors had the game in the bag. He may get treatment, but this ankle injury didn't look bad as he just lost his footing. Expect him to be a full go for a closeout game.
Apr 20 - 12:44 AM

Kevin Durant scored 26 points during a 110-97 win over the Spurs on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He did tweak his left ankle as he was going for loose ball and he did not return. Although, he didn't have a bad limp and the Warriors had the game in hand. Ankle injuries have been a major problem for the Warriors this year, but for now this one doesn't sound serious. As for the Warriors team, they've now won 18 straight Western Conference games and will go for the sweep on Sunday.
Apr 20 - 12:03 AM

Kevin Durant hit 10-of-19 shots, three 3-pointers and 9-of-10 free throws for 32 points, six rebounds, six assists and a block in 39 minutes to help the Warriors make a second-half comeback to beat the Spurs 116-101 to take a 2-0 lead in the series on Monday.

Klay Thompson was just as impressive, hitting 12-of-20 shots and five 3-pointers for 31 points and five assists in 39 minutes. The Warriors are rolling along without Stephen Curry and might be able to sweep the Spurs, even without him. Both Durant and Thompson's numbers might take a bit of a hit once Curry is back from his knee injury and rolling, but if you ended up with either of them in a postseason fantasy league, you've got to be pleased thus far.
Apr 17 - 1:33 AM

Kevin Durant was terrific during a 113-92 win over the Spurs in Game 1 on Saturday, scoring 24 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

His playmaking was the big takeaway as the point forward for the offense. If Andre Iguodala continues to start, there will be plenty of opportunity for Durant to handle the rock at least until Stephen Curry is able to return. Plus, the Warriors defense was as good as it's been in quite some time. The Spurs really don't have anyone to put on KD, so expect him to have a big series.
Apr 14 - 5:38 PM

Kevin Durant took a hard fall in the first half of Tuesday's ugly 119-79 loss to the Jazz and was holding his hip, but still played some in the second half, despite this game being over at halftime.

Durant hit 5-of-12 shots for 13 points, four rebounds and one assist on a night the Warriors were outscored 33-16 in the first quarter, 29-17 in the second, and 31-23 in the third. It's a little weird, as Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Quinn Cook were all out there to start the game, but they were simply steamrolled by the Jazz. The Warriors' regular season is now over and everyone will get some rest before the playoffs start. This game was meaningless to the Warriors, as they were already locked into the No. 2 seed in the West and will likely face the Thunder, and will now focus on getting everyone some rest and welcoming Stephen Curry back, hopefully in Round 2.
Apr 10 - 11:21 PM

Kevin Durant scored 41 points with 10 rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes during a 126-120 loss to the Pelicans on Saturday.

The Warriors would've been blown out of their own gym if not for KD being on a heater. This was his fourth 40-point game on the year, and his first 40-point, 10-board game of the season -- 19th 40-10 of his career. As for his team, they have some major defensive issues, giving up 126 in consecutive games. The Warriors not playing well could give KD a chance to play in both of the final games.
Apr 7 - 11:04 PM

Kevin Durant scored a team-high 27 points to go along with five rebounds, seven assists, two 3-pointers, three steals, one block and four turnovers across 33 minutes in a 126-106 loss to the Pacers on Thursday.

Durant was once again asked to shoulder the load offensively on Thursday night. However, his jumper wasn't falling. KD shot 8-of-23 from the field, including just 2-of-10 from 3-point territory. He did, however, clean up at the charity stripe, knocking down all nine of his free-throw attempts. Durant has now scored at least 27 points in each of his last four games. The Warriors are locked into the No. 2 seed out West, so there is some concern coach Steve Kerr may choose to rest KD over one of the Warriors final three contests.
Apr 5 - 9:45 PM

Kevin Durant hit 9-of-25 shots, two 3-pointers and 14-of-14 free throws for 34 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 36 minutes of Tuesday's thrilling 111-107 win over the Thunder.

The Warriors are getting healthy, as Draymond Green, Durant and Klay Thompson all played in this one, and Thompson was nice with 20 points, a couple threes and a full stat line. The Warriors are locked into the No. 2 seed in the West and will look to prepare for the playoffs, stay hot and play spoiler the rest of the way.
Apr 3 - 11:27 PM

Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (thumb) are available to play Tuesday against the Thunder.

This was expected, as both KD and Thompson were listed as probable on the injury report released Monday. Durant has been a beast of late. He had combined total of 56 points, 22 rebounds, and 13 assists over the Warriors back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday. Expect this trend to continue.
Apr 3 - 12:52 PM

Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (thumb) are probable to play Tuesday against the Thunder.

In Golden State, probable means will play, and we should get official confirmation following shootaround. Over three games this season, KD has put in averages of 27.3 points, 5.3 boards, 3.3 triples, 1.7 dimes and 1.3 steals per game, and he could be in for a monster night with Stephen Curry (knee) out and little depth behind him.
Apr 2 - 6:22 PM

Kevin Durant posted 29 points on 12-of-19 shooting with three 3-pointers over 35 minutes Sunday against the visiting Suns.

Durant also added 11 rebounds and eight assists with two blocked shots, falling just two dimes short of the triple-double. It was a nice outing against the defensively-challenged Suns. He'll get a crack against the Thunder in his old stomping grounds in what is always an emotional return to Oklahoma City on Tuesday evening.
Apr 1 - 11:26 PM

Kevin Durant went for 27 points across 31 minutes in Saturday's 112-96 road victory against the Kings.

Durant hit 8-of-16 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, and he added 9-of-11 from the charity stripe. He also snagged 10 rebounds with five assists and a blocked shot to lead the charge. It was his first full game back after his ribs issue. He returned on Thursday, but he was ejected right before halftime after picking up his 14th technical foul of the season. We'll see if he is back to 100 percent with the team right back at it on Sunday against the defensively challenged Suns.
Apr 1 - 12:56 AM

Kevin Durant was ejected from Thursday's game with 2.4 seconds left in the second quarter.

Durant will end his evening with 10 points (4-of-10 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), three rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer and four turnovers through 17 minutes as a starter. KD felt he got fouled on a drive to the hoop and aggressively walked up to an official, which resulted in him quickly getting tossed and he picked up his 14th technical of the season. At least his ribs didn't seem like a problem, and perhaps with him playing limited minutes tonight, he'll be allowed to play in both games of the Dubs' upcoming Saturday-Sunday back-to-back set.
Mar 29 - 11:41 PM

Quinn Cook, Patrick McCaw, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and JaVale McGee will start against the Bucks on Thursday.

KD has been expected to play for two days from a minor rib issue. With Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry out, he could have a big night in his return. He is likely to get rest in the future, though.
