The injury bug is hitting the Warriors hard — not with anything that seems like it will last into the playoffs, but it’s still a concern.
Stephen Curry (ankle) and Klay Thompson (fractured thumb), Draymond Green is just returning to the rotation (along with David West and Jordan Bell), and now this — Kevin Durant is going to be out a couple of weeks.
Injury update: Kevin Durant underwent an MRI today that revealed an incomplete rib cartilage fracture. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

What incomplete means is it is nondisplaced, or to use the slang it is a cracked rib. The bone was not moved out of place and does not need to be reset.
As feared, Kevin Durant (rib fracture) will be out for a couple weeks. Should be fine long before the playoffs. ‘It hurts when I laugh.’
