There are several options for Durant and the Warriors, including another two-year deal or a four-year max contract valued at around $158 million. The Warriors swept the Spurs in last season's Western Conference Finals after All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard hurt his ankle in Game 1.

Steve Kerr said Curry will be re-evaluated Saturday, but the head coach doesn't anticipate the guard will play at all in the first-round series, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

Severe concussion in your 20s increases risk of dementia, study warns
Between 1999 and 2013, 126,734 people (4.5%) aged 50 or older were diagnosed with dementia. Among the almost 2.8 million people observed, 4.7 percent had at least one TBI diagnosis.

The flexible contract Durant signed back in 2016 was mainly so the Warriors could resign vital bench pieces such as Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala, but also gave KD the opportunity to end it early in case of a change of heart or simply wanting more money.

Durant will turn 30 before the start of the 2018-19 campaign, but he continues to play at an MVP-caliber level during his second year in Golden State. The Warriors' combination of talent, experience, and coaching won't allow them to play in the playoffs the way they have over the previous month.

From before the first tip-off of the NBA season, Golden State seemed like the anointed one, the team destined to return to the NBA Finals and claim another crown.

And while neither Portland or New Orleans is a pushover, neither team has the firepower to make a push a seven-game series with Golden State to the limit (and that's without Curry).

In the absence of Curry, the Warriors are clearly Durant's team, meaning if one does not fear the Warriors without Curry, that directly means they do not fear Durant as he would have more than enough help to add a second ring to his resumé. He has added a defensive element to his game this year making him one of, if not the best two-way player in the National Basketball Association. "But I'm enjoying every moment of it, so I'm not trying to look too far down the line".
