Kevin Durant will not play against Timberwolves

The Warriors will be without one of their All-Stars on Wednesday night.

Kevin Durant will not play against the Timberwolves because of a left thigh contusion, the team announced.

Durant appeared in all of the Warriors' first 11 games.

He is averaging 24.8 points, 7.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.5 blocks this season, while shooting 53 percent from the field and over 46 percent from deep.

Over 34 career games against Minnesota, Durant is averaging 27.4 points on 50 percent shooting.

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph Curry lived up to his Splash Brother moniker on Sunday, and jumped into Lake Tahoe after losing a bet with his father, Dell Curry, at the American Century Championship.

The Splash Father bet the Splash Son he would trail by fewer than 20 points at the end of the tournament. The elder Curry had room to spare on Sunday, too, and was just 18 back of his son. 

The two-time MVP was a man of his word. 

 

Last year, the Currys made the same bet, and it was Dell Curry who had to purify himself in the waters of Lake Tahoe. He tied for 30th at the event this year, while Curry tied for 11th.

Move over, China Klay. Tahoe Steph is making a "triumphant" return of his own. 

Last summer, Warriors guard Steph Curry unsuccessfully tried dunking on a hoop on the course at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.

On Friday, the hoop made it 2-0. 

Would Golden State remain resounding favorites to three-peat as NBA champions if the team had to play every game in golf attire? Maybe that's how commissioner Adam Silver can achieve "parity of opportunity."
