Durant is averaging 26.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.4 assists for the Warriors this season.
KD joins fellow All-Stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson on the injury list for the defending champions and there's no doubt Steve Kerr will be a little anxious about his team's health heading into the playoffs. Both are scheduled to be reevaluated in the upcoming week. Golden State trails Houston by 2.5 games with 13 games remaining and share the same record with the Toronto Raptors, who are the leaders in Eastern Conference.
Injury update: Kevin Durant underwent an MRI today that revealed an incomplete rib cartilage fracture.
Evidence of Green's value was displayed during the closing minutes of Friday's 98-93 loss to the Sacramento Kings.
Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant plays against the Minnesota Timberwolves in an NBA basketball game Sunday, March 11, 2018, in Minneapolis. He also had seven assists and seven rebounds. I think it's more important for them to be healthy. "We're not coming in here just to compete". "I am who I am and bring to this team what I bring so just continue to play my game".
"We've just got to survive this next slate of games and hopefully start getting guys back and get rolling again for the playoffs", Kerr said.
Warriors: Casspi limped off at the 9-minute mark of the second with a sprained right ankle.
Golden State has prioritized health over anything else, able to do so with a vast 9.5-game lead over the third-place Portland Trail Blazers, which has served the team well in hopes to rehabilitate each of these injuries and not push anyone back before they're close to 100 percent. The Warriors may have more reinforcement when they return to Oakland for a four-game homestand. Green became the eighth player in franchise history with 500 or more blocked shots.
