Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant suffers knee injury

Their lineups resemble those of Fanduel and DraftKings money makers.

Golden State (50-10) has the best record in the National Basketball Association, and owns a four-game cushion over San Antonio for the top seed in the Western Conference.

The Bulls were nearly completely healthy now, getting Paul Zipser back from left ankle tendinitis for the game with the Warriors. With Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green drawing all of the attention, Barnes should enjoy some wide open looks when he's on the floor. And, hey - they have another crunch time rep under their belt, one that was a defensive rebound and a few inches away from looking like a tremendous success. They're expected to announce the severity of the injury on March 1. Yes, the Cavs are loaded. He was hurt two nights earlier in a loss at Washington.

The good news is that he walked off the court without much of a limp, and Twitter doctors everywhere initially agreed that it's likely to be a hyperextension and not utter devastation. Golden State is a historically good team, and it would be hard news to swallow if a team that talented got derailed by an injury to one of its best players. However, by keeping defenders off balance and making hard shots in the paint, McCaw has stayed useful for the best team in the league.

When the Warriors added Durant this past summer, they knowingly subtracted a lot-Andrew Bogut's defense, Festus Ezeli's size, Harrison Barnes's complementary talents.

India's abject surrender can be gauged by the fact that our batsmen played a mere 74 overs in two innings to score 212 runs. But times have changed since the retirement of Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Adam Gilchrist.

Unless sports fandom has robbed you of all perspective, it was unfortunate and scary to see Durant exit the game limping.

"We'll adjust without him, " Thompson said. You snooze, you loose.

Warriors beat writer Anthony Slater joined Murph and Mac on Wednesday morning, and said that clinching the top spot in the West becomes much more important with Durant out, especially when it comes to avoiding a second-round matchup with the unsafe Houston Rockets. Now, it's the Williams signing that has everyone in an uproar. Can't blame a man for that. I really don't think they want to play Houston. How could I not?.

Golden State would be doubled up through the remainder of the quarter, however, as the Bulls would go on a run to take a 79-73 lead heading into the fourth and final frame. Scorers, rebounders, assists, three's and shot-blocking. The team is much more optimistic now that he will be able to return this season, but it's still a significant injury.
