According to David Aldridge of The Athletic, multiple teams are still expected to make a strong run at Kevin Durant this summer, despite him suffering what the Warriors reportedly believe is a torn Achilles’ tendon.
Durant can opt out of his contract at the end of the season and become an unrestricted free agent. He will also have the opportunity to exercise a $31,5 player option to remain with the Warriors. If that’s the case, he would become an unrestricted free agent again at the end of next season. Along with the Warriors, the Knicks, the Nets, the Lakers and the Clippers are all expected to continue to pursue KD and offer a maximum-salary contract.

December 13, 2019, 8:18 pmDelon WrightPG, Dallas Mavericks
Delon Wright (right adductor strain) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Heat.
Wright has been a drop in standard leagues and his injury has made him a tough hold even in 18-team leagues.
December 13, 2019, 8:15 pmIsaiah ThomasPG, Washington Wizards
Isaiah Thomas (left calf strain) is questionable to play in Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies.
Thomas has been out for a week and change with this injury. During that time, Ish Smith has produced serviceable standard-league value. There should be a timeshare situation brewing between these two guards moving forward – curtailing both their upsides.
December 13, 2019, 8:11 pmFred VanVleetPG, Toronto Raptors
The Raptors are listing Fred VanVleet (right knee contusion) as doubtful for Saturday's game.
This is an update to a previous blurb having him as a game-time decision. Still consider him as up in the air and stay tuned for more updates closer to tip off.
December 13, 2019, 8:01 pmCameron JohnsonSF, Phoenix Suns
Cameron Johnson is probable vs. the Spurs on Saturday as he deals with left hip soreness.
Johnson has been a late-round value as a 3-point streamer. If he's good to go, consider him if you're in need of a boost in that category.
December 13, 2019, 7:57 pmDario SaricPF, Phoenix Suns
Dario Saric is probable to play against the Spurs on Saturday due to lower back soreness.
Saric has been dealing with this sore lower back for almost a week now. Hopefully, with some rest and treatment, he'll be able to give it a go.
December 13, 2019, 7:55 pmDevin BookerSG, Phoenix Suns
Devin Booker is questionable for Saturday's game with a left forearm contusion.
If Booker, who didn't practice on Friday, is unable to take the court, expect Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson to see some extra run.
December 13, 2019, 7:53 pmAron BaynesC, Phoenix Suns
Aron Baynes (left calf strain) is probable vs. the Spurs on Saturday.
Baynes has not looked quite like his breakout self lately and is possibly not yet 100 percent healthy. He should eventually get his legs back but will surely take a hit upon Deandre Ayton's return from his suspension.
December 13, 2019, 7:43 pmDylan WindlerSF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Dylan Windler (left leg) suffered a setback and will be out for at least two more weeks at which point, he will be re-evaluated.
Windler has been assigned to the Cavs' G League affiliate, the Canton Charge. At this rate we could expect a 2020 rookie debut from Windler.

LeBron James heads to the locker room on Friday after committing his second foul of the game.
James is tough as nails, so we're not too worried. Hopefully, it's nothing serious.

Anthony Davis is listed on the injury report with a sore right shoulder, but is all set to battle the Heat on Friday.
The shoulder issue is irrelevant at this point for Davis who has been fantastic all season. Throw him out there and sit back.
