Kevin Durant has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his left knee, and is expected to be out for the next 4-6 weeks. The injury occurred during a Saturday game against the New Orleans Pelicans, when teammate Bruce Brown fell into Durant’s knee. With luck, he should be back before the playoffs start.

Draymond Green has missed the last few games due to a sore left calf, which is now being traced to a disk in his lower back. The Warriors will have to manage without him, as the Warriors plan on reevaluating Green in two weeks. Steve Kerr also rested Stephen Curry last night, and missing those two key players was evident on the court as the Warriors lost by 20 points to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Devin Booker dropped 30 points against the Detroit Pistons, and 20 of those points came within a single half. The Suns are now 9-0 when Booker has 20 points in a half, and the final score of the game was 135-108. Because the Suns were blowing out the Pistons so badly, Booker only played 29 minutes and 35 seconds.
