Karl-Anthony Towns
News 
 After suffering an injury in Saturday night's game against the Pelicans, Durant has been diagnosed with a sprained MCL. The team is expecting Durant to miss around 4 to 6 weeks. There was relief that the injury was not more serious since knee injuries can often be a great concern. Durant is expected to make a full recovery and should return before the postseason easily as long as there are no setbacks.
