Warriors star Kevin Durant said he suffered his fractured rib Sunday in his team's loss at Minnesota. "Late in the game, I was driving to the rim, and I kind of rammed into Karl-Anthony Towns and that's when I felt it," Durant said. "That's when it happened, for sure, and they told me it got inflamed over the last couple days between games." Durant still played in his team's 117-106 win over the Lakers on Wednesday, notching a game-high 26 points, but in the second quarter of that game, Durant said he aggravated the injury when closing out on a defender on the perimeter. "That's when I felt it and I kind of stopped," Durant said. "I didn't know what was going on at that point, but when I went over to the bench, it was hurting pretty bad." He said he's not concerned, overall, about the issue. "Hopefully this feels better over the next week or so and I'll be out there," Durant said.
