All indications so far are that Kevin Durant will be available to play tonight after missing one game due to an injury to his non-shooting hand.
Kevin Durant's hand/wrist has improved, and he will play tomorrow barring a setback, per Steve Kerr.— Tim Bontemps (@TimBontemps) February 27, 2017
While we may or may not have needed him tonight, it is good news because it indicates the severity of the injury was pretty minor.
As detailed in the Mercury News, although the Sixers will be without some of their most recognizable names, they are not completely bereft of talent. Draymond Green should have his capable hands full trying to cover rookie Dario Saric.
To paraphrase, Saric is averaging a solid 20 points and 9 rebounds per game over the past seven games, and comes into tonight's game having acheived a double double in his past four games.
In other news, it looks like the Sixers have completed their buyout of Andrew Bogut, paving the way for Bogut to complete the ultimate troll move by signing on the cheap with the Cleveland Cavaliers to challenge us in the playoffs.
Finally, if you want to take a look, the Warriors official twitter account had a pretty cool look at our franchise's roots in Philly

The Warriors are favored by 14 points tonight. Let's go make it happen!
Steph seems ready!
