Still, Durant said he stayed positive. "Today was one of those days where I went out there and played and practiced with the guys and I felt normal". The training staff helped him chip away at the injury every single day.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said in a press conference Friday there will not be a minutes restriction on the eight-time All-Star. However, Kerr already spoke to Matt Barnes and Patrick McCaw about their changing roles due to Kevin Durant's return.

The team had hoped to play the pair for the remaining three regular season games to regain the timing lost since Durant went down with a Grade 2 left MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise on February 28th. Golden State plays the Utah Jazz on Monday and the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. "I knew that was something I could overcome", he said.

Moving forward, Durant said he will try to focus on each day. That's my favorite thing to do, to play basketball.

Nearly half of US adults infected with genital HPV
Among women ages 20 to 24, the prevalence of these four strains decreased from 18.5 percent to 12.1 percent over that same period. That percentage jumped to more than 42 percent during 2013 to 2014 if any type of genital HPV was included, the CDC found.

As for the Pelicans, They are not expected to be at full strength either.

The Pelicans made a big move to acquire DeMarcus Cousins at the trade deadline, but it wasn't enough to push them over the top, as they'll miss the playoffs for the second-straight year.

Currently, the Pelicans are 33-46 and they are eliminated from playoff contention. In doing so, they became the first team in National Basketball Association history to win at least 65 games in three-straight campaigns. He joined the Warriors via free agency this past offseason.

For the season, the 29-year-old shooting icon is averaging 25.3 points and 6.6 assists per game. The Warriors are probably going to be without their superstar signal caller against the New Orleans Pelicans because of a knee contusion.
