Golden State’s only center signed beyond this season, Jones’ time banging against the likes of Zaza Pachulia, David West and JaVale McGee in practice will only help him should he get a shot at the rotation next season. The player...

Kevin Durant details nerve-racking hours after knee injury

Less than two minutes into the Warriors’ Feb. 28 loss to the Wizards, when Zaza Pachulia crashed into him, Kevin Durant heard a crack. “It was something that I never felt before, I never heard before,” Durant recalled during a podcast interview with Bill Simmons posted Friday morning. Durant’s worst fears were confirmed the next day when doctors told him he had fractured his left tibia. For the first time since that night in Washington a month ago, the eight-time NBA All-Star detailed to Simmons the aftermath of that initial diagnosis. The first diagnosis we got was that I broke...
