Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant indifferent about playing Russell Westbrook, Thunder

PHILADELPHIA PA- NOVEMBER 18 Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors looks on against the Philadelphia 76ers in the first half at Wells Fargo Center

The shots kept falling into the basket, as Kevin Durant moved around the court.

There are questions about whether Durant will play during the first matchup in the midwest between the two teams this season - Golden State travels to Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, and Durant is listed as questionable with an ankle injury. I really hope I'm wrong because as a fan, I definitely would prefer to see Westbrook and the Thunder winning this one at home, but I just feel that the Warriors will be too much for the struggling Thunder.

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant looks on during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017, in Philadelphia. "Right now it feels good". Tuesday morning, he went through a light practice with no problems. Last year KD admitted that returning to Oklahoma City was "never going to be a regular game", because of his history with the franchise and his former running mate, Russell Westbrook.


Durant missed the Warriors game on Sunday and his status for Wednesday is still unclear. "I learned how to tune out the crowd, I learned how to tune out the (expletive)". I learned to tune out the [BS] and just play.

A year later, after helping the Warriors win a title and unloading on the Thunder on Twitter during the offseason, Durant said his emotions have changed entering the Warriors' first trip to Chesapeake Energy Arena. Durant is just 29 and has many years of basketball left in his tank, so it's not very timely to decide anything concerning his retirement from basketball today.

The Warriors swept the 2016-17 season series with the Thunder. It looks like we are headed towards a game-time decision.
