Some players in the Warriors' locker room reportedly believe that Kevin Durant is guaranteed to leave as a free agent after what Draymond Green said.
"With what was said, there is already no way Durant is coming back," one player said. "The only hope is that they can say this summer, ‘See, KD. We’ve got your back. We protected you from Draymond.’" Management appeared to take KD's side by suspending Green for one game, but the damage has already been done, and Durant was clearly still perturbed by had what occurred during his postgame interview on Wednesday.

Kevin Durant hit 9-of-23 shots and 11-of-11 free throws for 29 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 37 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Hawks.

Durant's feelings must not have been hurt too badly after reportedly (and repeatedly) being called the 'B word' by Draymond Green on Monday, and he helped bring the Warriors back from a three-point halftime deficit for a pretty easy win, despite not hitting any 3-pointers. Green will be back against the Rockets on Thursday with the world watching, and it will be interesting to see if he and KD make amends by then, although tonight's post-game reports indicate that Durant still seems to be bothered by Monday's incident with Green. Regardless of what happens, both players should keep playing at a high level, as the goal of winning another ring surely outweighs any personal feelings they're struggling with right now. Right?

Draymond Green reportedly challenged Kevin Durant regarding his impending free agency during a heated verbal exchange following Monday's loss to the Clippers.

Durant was upset that Green didn't pass him the rock during the closing minutes of regulation on Monday, and that argument carried over into the locker room after the Dubs lost in overtime. It's not uncommon for guys to get in heated arguments over the course of the season, but bringing up KD's free agency could be perceived as a low-blow.
Nov 13 - 4:58 PM

Kevin Durant scored 33 points with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two blocked shots, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes in Monday's loss to Los Angeles.

The triple-double is the 11th of Durant's career, and his fourth as a member of the Warriors. In scoring his game-high 33 points the nine-time All-Star shot 10-for-24 from the field (2-for-4 3-pointers) and 11-for-13 from the foul line. But Durant also had to navigate some foul trouble, as his night came to an end on a questionable foul call with 3:46 remaining in overtime. Golden State has four more games to play this week, and with Stephen Curry (groin) already ruled out for Tuesday's game against Atlanta, Durant could be in line for another big night.
Nov 13 - 1:22 AM

Kevin Durant scored 28 points with five rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer during a 116-100 win over the Nets on Saturday.

It was the 14th game with 20-plus points and 10-plus dimes in his career with just one of those games coming without Stephen Curry. Durant's numbers were eye-popping without Curry on the floor last year, posting per-36 stats of 29.6 points, 8.0 boards, 5.8 dimes, 2.1 blocks and 2.7 treys, and those numbers are even better this year including 35.8 points per 36. Fancy stats aside, you don't need any information to tell you that KD is going to drop some big lines while Curry is on the shelf.
Nov 11 - 12:45 AM

Kevin Durant scored 17 points with five rebounds, nine assist, one block, six turnovers and one 3-pointer during a 134-111 loss to the Bucks on Thursday.

The Warriors could have to alter their offense with Stephen Curry (groin) getting hurt today. Durant has a 35.2 usage rate when Curry isn't on the floor next to him this season, and it was 32.7 last season. The Warriors are also less likely to blow teams out, so overall this could be a positive for KD's fantasy value.
Nov 9 - 1:46 AM

Kevin Durant scored 33 points with 13 rebounds, three assists, one block and three triples in a 116-99 win over the Wolves on Friday.

That's his fifth game of the season with 30+ points and his second with double-digit boards. He was 11-of-19 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line, and he only trails Stephen Curry and Anthony Davis in per-game value for 9-category leagues. Speaking of Curry, he was a beast too with 28 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and four 3-pointers.
Nov 3 - 1:25 AM

The Warriors improved to 6-1 this season with a win vs. Brooklyn on Sunday, aided by Kevin Durant's 34 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

KD made 11-of-20 field goals and 10-of-11 free throws in yet another ultra-efficient offensive performance. The eventual return of DeMarcus Cousins is the only background concern for Durant owners, as Cousins' usage could take a chunk of touches away from both KD and Steph Curry, but that's no reason to fret. He's simply a lock for elite value as long as he's healthy.
Oct 28 - 7:39 PM

Kevin Durant went off in a 128-100 win over the Knicks at MSG, scoring 41 points on 17-of-24 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists, five triples and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

This game was tight entering the fourth, but KD blew the lid off the arena with 25 of his points in the quarter (a career-high for points in a quarter). There was a lot of attention on KD because the Knicks are making him their top priority in free agency next summer, and he obviously loves playing at MSG, calling it a "playground with walls." KD has said himself that he's not looking beyond 2018-19, so we won't read too much into any of the chatter. As for fantasy, KD has been unfair over his last two games, shooting a combined 30-of-42 from the field.

Kevin Durant made 13-of-18 shots to score 30 points on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

On most teams this would be the headline, but the Warriors aren't most teams. Steph Curry stole the show with an incredible shooting exhibition en route to 51 points, so KD's hyper-efficient, stat-stuffing game gets second billing. His fantasy owners appreciate it, of course, and he's cruising along with his typical elite value through five games.
Oct 25 - 1:56 AM

Kevin Durant notched 20 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in a loss at Denver on Sunday.

The Warriors play again at home vs. Phoenix on Sunday, so it's noteworthy that coach Steve Kerr didn't reveal specific restrictions in back-to-back situations. "We’ll see how it goes," he told reporters before the game. KD is an unlikely target for an early-season DNP so owners should start him with confidence as Golden State looks to avenge tonight's tough defeat.
Oct 21 - 10:46 PM

Kevin Durant led the Warriors to a 124-123 win over the Jazz on Friday, scoring 38 points on 14-of-25 shooting.

He hit his only 3-point attempt and was a perfect 9-of-9 from the stripe, adding nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and one triple in 40 minutes. When he's feeling it, he has just as much upside as anyone in fantasy not named Anthony Davis. He's averaging 39.0 minutes over the first two games, so expect the Warriors to dial back his minutes a bit in the upcoming back-to-back set against Denver (Sunday in Denver) and Phoenix (Monday at home).
Oct 20 - 1:30 AM

Kevin Durant hit 9-of-21 shots, missed all five of his 3-pointers, and hit 9-of-10 free throws on his way to 27 points, eight rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in 38 minutes of Tuesday's season-opening win over the Thunder.

Durant was Durant and owners have to be pleased, although he'll hit his 3-pointers going forward. He's still arguably the best player in the NBA, and he might be over seven-feet tall.
Oct 17 - 1:35 AM

Kevin Durant will rest for the preseason finale on Friday.

He'll defend his decision on his Twitter accounts. Joking aside, if fantasy owners weren't worried about late-season DNPs he'd be a no-brainer pick in the top 3.
Oct 12 - 8:54 PM

Kevin Durant fouled out of Wednesday's game with 18 points, 12 rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes.

KD wasn't pleased with the ref's quick whistles and he let them know about it, resulting in a technical foul for his efforts. He dropped 8-of-14 shots before his early exit, of course, and remains one of the easiest early-round picks in fantasy hoops.
