Kevin Durant (protocols) will be cleared for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors. Coach Steve Nash confirmed that KD will be a "full go" without any restrictions. He also joked that KD wouldn't let him monitor his minutes if he tried, as he's likely had this matchup highlighted, starred and underlined on his calendar.
Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Stephen Curry had another monster night in a 111-105 win over the Magic on Thursday with 40 points (14-of-26 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), eight rebounds, five assists, four steals and 10 triples in 37 minutes. To nobody’s surprise, Curry has been the No. 1 player in fantasy in recent weeks, coming into tonight with averages of 37.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 6.4 triples over his previous five games. This is like his 2016 MVP season all over again with Curry putting the team on his back, and coach Steve Kerr had nothing but praise for him. "I do think, and maybe it's circumstantial given the injuries and the fact that he's playing with a different group of guys -- this is the best I've ever seen him just from a confidence and a strength standpoint. And that's saying something, obviously, a two-time MVP, I don't think I've ever seen him look better.
