Warriors Receive Tough Blow

Kevin Durant Out Indefinitely With Knee Injury

The legend of the people’s All-Star Zaza Pachulia continues to grow.

On Tuesday night against the Washington Wizards, one of the Golden State Warriors’ biggest fears came to reality. While battling for a rebound against Marcin Gortat, Pachulia put his acting prowess to the test, flopping right into Kevin Durant’s left knee, forcing the superstar to leave the game.

The Warriors fell to the Wizards by a score of 112-108, but all of the concern was revolved around Durant. This morning after undergoing further testing, the team announced that Durant has suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain and a tibial bone bruise. He will be re-evaluated in four-weeks, but there is no timetable of his return.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported late last night that there was a chance that Durant could miss months as opposed to weeks, so these results should come as good news to the Warriors fanbase. As of now, Durant has not been ruled out for the season and there is no impending need for surgery.

According to Woj’s sources, there is a good chance for a mid-April return for KD. Stephen Curry suffered a similar injury last season during the playoffs and only missed two weeks of time. Curry may have not been 100% healthy the rest of the way, but he managed to finish the rest of the Warriors playoff run.

As a result, the Warriors will honour their contract with Jose Calderon, but will immediately cut him in order to bring back Matt Barnes for much needed help on their wings.

Safe to say, there will be some nostalgia in the air upon Barnes’ debut.
