Cleveland Cavaliers players, coaches react to news of Kevin Durant's knee injury

After learning the severity of Kevin Durant's knee injury, the Warriors turned to a familiar face for the final spot on the roster.

Warriors coach Kerr said he was proud the way his team had responded after being forced to reorganise following the early departure of Durant.

The Warriors will suit up for their first game of the season without free agent acquisition, and undoubtedly top 10 player, Kevin Durant. He landed on Durant's left knee, resulting in the latter's injury.

But, if he can not, Golden State is an injury away from their shaky bench becoming a determining factor in whether they live up to the preseason hype and that's not good. Curry returned later in the playoffs, although whether or not he was ever 100 percent healthy as the Warriors fell to the Cavaliers is unclear.

With Durant sidelined, the Warriors will have to rely on a lineup that hasn't been almost as effective. They will be trying to sweep the Bulls in back-to-back seasons for the second time ever and the first time since 1999-00 and 2000-01.

Yes, counted in the loss column, but more so as a bitter taste that fans and players alike have to endure while Kevin Durant's availability for the remainder of the Warriors' 2016-17 campaign remains uncertain - the real cost of Tuesday's events is yet to be determined. NBA MVP Stephen Curry led the scoring for the Warriors with 25 points, seven rebounds and four assists. These are the things you do to acquire a generational superstar, even when you already have one. The team is only slightly worse defensively when McCaw is on the court, but that number is probably clouded by the fact that he plays nearly entirely on bench units.

"It's a dream come true", Matt Barnes, 36, told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears, celebrating his return to the Golden State Warriors, according to ESPN. Durant clutched his knee following this but tried to play through it.

By the third quarter, the Bulls outscored the defending Western Conference champs 32-22, and Thompson and Curry were a combined 3-for-13 from outside the three-point line. But, he checked himself out of the game a few minutes later.

The Warriors' five-game East Coast road trip continues with stops in Washington Wizards, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks. "I know we're going to try to win as many games as we can.We will do our best to keep the positioning we have now, but it's not going to be easy".
