Durant: Warriors set to welcome back their star after knee injury

Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant took the hardwood against the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night for his first game since he suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain and tibial bone bruise on February 28. However, it hardly bodes well for the Pelicans that Golden State is holding opponents to 99.9 points on 41.6 percent shooting during its current 13-game winning streak.

Quotable: "I've played basketball my whole life".

Kerr reiterated he will start Durant and take him out at signs he is tiring, and he spoke to Matt Barnes and Patrick McCaw about their roles changing.

Following multiple workout sessions in recent days - including 2-on-2, 3-on-3 and 4-on-4 scrimmages - forward Kevin Durant has been cleared by the team's medical and athletic training staffs to return to full-team practices.

"So I just tried to focus on each day", Durant said.

Journey Members Reflect on Rock Hall Induction and Seeing Steve Perry Again
If you ever stopped believin' that Steve Perry would rejoin the rock group Journey , you simply aren't a true fan. Journey will be inducted into the Hall of Fame by Train lead singer, Pat Monahan.

Durant returns with three games remaining in the regular season, and the playoffs looming next weekend.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said in a press conference Friday there will not be a minutes restriction on the eight-time All-Star. That's my favorite thing to do, to play basketball.

Currently, the Pelicans are 33-46 and they are eliminated from playoff contention. Between Cousins and Anthony Davis, you'd be hard pressed to find a better frontcourt tandem, particularly on the offensive end. At the time, Durant was leading the Warriors in both points per game (25.3) and rebounds per game (8.2).

How will Kevin Durant look in his return? CBS Sports' Sean Wagner-McGough said that it will be important to watch the Warriors' rotations and how many minutes Durant plays, as well as Durant's impact on Klay Thompson, Curry and the rest of the Warriors.

The Golden State Warriors Vs New Orleans match will kick-start at 10:30 PM at Oracle Arena, Oakland.
