For KD, the opening of the Durant Center is 'truly a dream come true'

Kevin Durant was not present at Warriors practice Wednesday night in Washington.

Don't worry. He had a great excuse.

Durant wasn't practicing because he had somewhere to be: the official opening of College Track at the Durant Center, a new facility in his hometown of Prince George's County, Maryland, aimed at helping low-income and underserved students enroll and graduate from college.

The new state-of-the-art facility will offer students the academic, financial, and social-emotional resources to embolden their college and career goals. It's opening comes a year after Durant announced a personal 10-year, $10 million commitment to Prince George's County.

"When my foundation partnered with College Track last year, we said from day one we wanted it to live inside a facility we could develop for Prince George’s County,” Durant said. “The opening of the Durant Center is truly a dream come true for me and my family.”

Community outreach has been a priority for Durant throughout his NBA career, but even more so in recent years. Last June, he was awarded the 2017-18 Season-long NBA Cares Community Assist Award after pledging more than $13 million to numerous organizations with a dedicated emphasis on education.

The grand opening coincided with Golden State's trip to the nation's capital, as the Warriors put their eight-game winning streak on the line against the Wizards on Thursday.

Jonas Jerebko to miss rest of Warriors' road trip due to birth of child

You won't see forward Jonas Jerebko in the next three Warriors games.

But it's not related to anything on the court. Jerebko has left the team so he can fly home to be with his wife Johanna, who is expecting their second child.

The Warriors are scheduled to play the Wizards on Thursday in Washington, the Celtics on Saturday in Boston and the Pacers on Monday in Indiana.

After that, they return home face the 76ers and Lakers.

The 31-year-old Jerebko has had an up-and-down first season with the Warriors. For a long stretch, he was one of the first players off the bench and a key contributor. But recently, he's found himself out of the rotation.

In 47 games, he's averaging 7.1 points and 4.9 rebounds.

Good luck to Jonas and Johanna. We can't wait to see the newest member of the Jerebko family.
