Kevin Durant had another ridiculous game during a 102-98 win over the Pistons on Friday, scoring a season-high 36 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, one steal, five blocks and three 3-pointers.
That'll do it for the six-game road trip and the Warriors became the 11th team in NBA history to sweep a six-game trip. Durant's usage rate is up from last year at 29.7 in his 22 games and he's still been outstanding in efficiency with a 62.8 TS%. He also has scored 35-plus points in back-to-back games for the first time in the regular season since becoming a Warrior -- he did in Game 4 and 5 in the 2017 NBA Finals. KD did have a very minor right ankle tweak in this game, but there's not much reason to worry about fantasy's No. 4 player so far this year. DFS players have certainly enjoyed him going 7X in the last two, as well. Dec 9 - 12:08 AM

Kevin Durant carried the shorthanded Warriors during a 101-87 win over the Hornets on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 35 points with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

No Stephen Curry (ankle), no Draymond Green (shoulder), no problem. This was KD's third 30-point triple-double in his NBA career, his second with the Dubs and his ninth overall. Durant has been efficient no matter who he plays next, and he also talked about how he wanted to spread the ball to his teammates after the game. Durant had a season-high 42.1 usage rate and a triple-double today, which sounds like one of his former teammates. KD is going to absolutely feast while Curry is recovering.
Dec 7 - 1:02 AM

Kevin Durant was ejected with 1:14 remaining of Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

He received his second technical of the game after jawing with DeMarcus Cousins who was also ejected. Durant finished 8-of-21 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line in 35 minutes, scoring 19 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and six turnovers. He's been banged up lately with injuries to both ankles, but it's a great sign that he played both games of the back-to-back set. He gets a matchup with Charlotte on Wednesday.
Dec 4 - 10:29 PM

Kevin Durant (right ankle) and Stephen Curry (hand) will play on Sunday vs. Miami.

This isn't the same ankle that forced him to miss four games recently and KD looked fine after he tweaked it vs. Orlando. The Warriors do play again on Monday vs. the Pelicans, so there's a small chance that Durant could be rested in that one if he's not 100 percent.
Dec 3 - 11:26 AM

Kevin Durant (right ankle) is probable to play against the Heat on Sunday.

We're fully expecting him to play. It's worth a mention this is the right ankle he tweaked on Friday night, and not the left ankle that kept him out for a couple games. His owners will want to check back on Sunday because the Dubs are on a back-to-back set.
Dec 2 - 4:47 PM

Kevin Durant (sprained left ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

Kevin Durant tallied 25 points, two rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and one turnover in 31 minutes against the Magic on Friday before being ejected in the fourth quarter. The good news is that he was still in the game well into the fourth quarter despite the Warriors nursing a big lead. KD should be ready to roll on Sunday.

Kevin Durant was ejected in the fourth quarter on Friday, finishing with 25 points, two rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and one turnover in 31 minutes against the Magic.

He looked to use some foul language to the ref, so he'll probably get a fine. Before the ejection, he did look to tweak his right ankle in the first quarter, but he obviously looked fine the rest of the way. Durant's left ankle has been his problematic one this season, but he played well into the fourth quarter with the Warriors flirting with a 20-point lead early in the frame. His ankle will be something to watch for the back-to-back on Sunday and Monday against the Heat and Pelicans.
Dec 1 - 9:12 PM

Kevin Durant (sprained left ankle) is available to play Friday vs. Orlando.

Durant practiced on Thursday and said his ankle is fine, so expect him to see his normal allotment of minutes in a great matchup. The Warriors do have a back-to-back set on Sunday and Monday and coach Steve Kerr said he may rest some guys, so KD could be a candidate to sit if he's not completely healthy.
Dec 1 - 1:46 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle), Stephen Curry (hand), Andre Iguodala (knee) and David West (knee) were upgraded to probable for Friday against the Magic.

The Warriors did not upgrade Klay Thompson (ankle), who rolled his ankle on Wednesday and is questionable. Durant looked totally fine in his return on Wednesday with 29 points, so we're fully expecting him to start the road trip off with a bang against a weak Orlando defense.
Nov 30 - 8:16 PM

Kevin Durant (left ankle), Stephen Curry (right hand), Klay Thompson (left ankle), David West (left knee) and Andre Iguodala (left knee) are all questionable to face the Magic on Friday.

Well that's a big-name injury report, and it's still November. Durant looked totally fine on Wednesday in his return with 29 points in 42 minutes, so this is likely just a precautionary thing because he played so much. The Warriors are not on a back-to-back, and we'd expect KD to play unless he's really sore.
Nov 30 - 3:31 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) was back in action on Wednesday, scoring 29 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

Steve Kerr did point out his team's "galling" turnovers tonight, which were part of the reason they needed an OT period to pull away from the Lakers, and KD had six of them tonight, his highest since Oct. 21. The headline for fantasy owners is that Durant's ankle looked fine and he played huge minutes -- everything else is white noise.
Nov 30 - 2:31 AM

Kevin Durant (ankle) and Stephen Curry (hand) will play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

They were upgraded to probable for this game, so they've been expected to play for most of the day. Durant didn't sound too discouraged when he was interviewed at shootaround and he even talked about Nick Young taking 20 shots against his former team. Get KD in your lineup.
Nov 29 - 9:06 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) and Stephen Curry (hand) are probable against the Lakers on Wednesday.

This is great news for the Warriors after a week off since the game in OKC. Coach Steve Kerr said he may have regretted playing KD in that national TV game, so the Warriors may still be careful with the reigning Finals MVP. For now, expect him to be ready to roll in a game that figures to get to garbage time. Omri Casspi and Andre Iguodala may lose some minutes while basically the entire rotation loses a ton of usage.
Nov 29 - 2:03 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) and Stephen Curry (hand) were back at practice on Tuesday and are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

Durant has spent the past three games on the sidelines with the ankle sprain and said he had some swelling on the inside of his ankle, but his mobility is improving and his return to practice on Tuesday is encouraging regarding his status for Wednesday's game. Curry's hand injury seems very minor, so it would be surprising to see him miss his second game in a row on Wednesday night, but we should get another update on both these guys following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Stay tuned.
Nov 28 - 3:06 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) and Stephen Curry (hand) will not play on Monday vs. the Kings.

Durant will sit out for the fourth time in five games as he continues to battle soreness in his left ankle. The Warriors do have three more games this week starting on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, so hopefully we'll see him back on the court soon. With Andre Iguodala (knee) considered doubtful, Omri Casspi, Nick Young and Patrick McCaw could all be in the rotation tonight, while Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will be popular DFS plays.
