What Kevin Durant’s Injury Means for Golden State

KD Warriors

Two words: Absolutely nothing.

The Warriors were winning championships¬†before¬†KD put on the blue and yellow. Don’t get me wrong, KD being out of commission is not ideal, but the Warriors are a team that can survive without him.

You have Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green still balling out. Andre Igoudala will certainly have an increased role in a Durant-less Warriors attack, but guys like Kevon Looney and Andrew Bogut will no doubt have additional minutes doled out to them.

The Warriors have the 3-2 lead over the Rockets, and I don’t see them dropping two straight just from the Durant injury. Expect Curry, Thompson and Green to have big games in an effort to put the series away tomorrow (Friday) night in Houston.
