Durant Out for at Least 2 Weeks with Rib Cartilage Fracture

18 March 2018

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant plays against the Minnesota Timberwolves in an NBA basketball game Sunday, March 11, 2018, in Minneapolis.

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant joined his team's lengthening injury list, sitting out Friday's game against Sacramento with a rib injury that will sideline him two weeks.

Golden State will remain without both the two-time NBA Most Valuable player Curry and Thompson for road games against the Suns and the Spurs (Monday).

Warriors' coach Steve Kerr, and Pat Riley, are the only coaches to win divisional crowns in their first four seasons as an National Basketball Association head coach. "We are just playing".

"We were indecisive on offence, we had a few turnovers and they got out running and they went on a run", Thomas said.

Durant's MRI results found he had an incomplete rib cartilage fracture, the team confirmed. "I am who I am and bring to this team what I bring so just continue to play my game".

Cook scored 13 in the first quarter as the Warriors jumped out to a nice lead, but they held just a 59-57 edge at halftime.

The Warriors are suffering from a serious case of Murphy's Law with only 12 games left in the season.

During his pregame presser, Kerr said Green - who normally starts at the 4 position - could play some 3 against the visiting Sacramento Kings. Thompson is expected to miss at least three more games.

On the other hand, Thompson is dealing with a fractured right thumb. That would mean he could be on their roster for the playoffs, but it would also mean the Warriors would have to cut someone from their active roster to make room - and the most likely player looks like Casspi.
