Yesterday, Golden State’s Kevin Durant wouldn’t play against the Sacramento Kings due to a rib injury. But things look far worse now. In fact, Durant is going to miss at least two weeksA�due to an incomplete rib cartilage fracture.
Injury update: Kevin Durant underwent an MRI today that revealed an incomplete rib cartilage fracture. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Meanwhile, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry remain out with hand and ankle injuries, respectively. But losing Durant too? That’s far from ideal, especially as we near the stretch run.
But while the Houston Rockets hold a 2.5-game lead on the Warriors out west, Golden State will still finish second at the very least. Right now, there’s a 9.5-game gap between the Warriors and Blazers. And while Portland has won 11 in a row, there’s no way they win out… Right?
Still, the Warriors would like Curry, Klay and KD all healthy and playoff ready when the time comes. There’s no doubt about that.
Up next, the Warriors take on Phoenix tonight.
