Fantasy Impact:

Rumors of Durant’s departure from the Warriors have been swirling all season long, and his ruptured Achilles suffered in Game 5 of the Finals only complicated matters. It appears Durant will test the free agent market, with the New York Knicks as the most serious contender to land him and the Brooklyn Nets in play, too. Durant will miss the 2019-2020 season while recovering from his Achilles injury no matter where he signs.
