Zion Williamson injury update: Duke star ruled out vs. Miami on Saturday
The fact Duke waited until Saturday to announce Williamson is out for the Miami game left a glimmer of hope he might play.
Kevin Durant isn't ready to make his return for the Warriors' game Saturday against the Thunder.
Golden State coach Steve Kerr said Durant will not play in Oklahoma City, indicating he wants to give the star forward a couple more days to rest his ankle.
"I just think that given the nature of the ankle and giving him a couple of extra days makes too much sense, especially at this stage of the season," Kerr said, per.
Kerr said Durant likely could play, however, the team wants to be "extra cautious" because the playoffs are so close.
"If this were a playoff game, for sure he would be playing. But we want to be extra cautious. So I'm guessing San Antonio will be his first game back. But we'll see how he feels. It's up to him and to Rick (Celebrini) after shootaround."
