Kevin Durant is a game-time decision but closer to doubtful for game two, per Sam Amick of NBC Sports.
If Durant does indeed miss the game then Steph Curry will be a lock and load for DFS purposes. With Durant on the court Steph has a 34.6 percent usage rate and scores 1.38 Fanduel points per minute. If you’re game theory is that Steph will struggle shooting the ball then it would be smart to lock in Klay Thompson. Over the past three months with Durant off the court, Klay has had a 31.3 percent usage rate which has resulted in 1.02 Fanduel points per minute. Surprisingly, with Durant off the court Andre Iguodala does not have a usage increase or a points per minute increase. Matt Barnes has done well in place of Durant when he starts this season as he averaged .84 Fanduel points per minute when starting.
