Pelicans injury report: C Omer Asik (illness), C DeMarcus Cousins (right Achilles tendonitis), PF Anthony Davis (left knee soreness) and SG Quincy Pondexter (left knee) are out. He said playing basketball is his favorite thing so it hard to be away from the game. It only helps, of course, that Durant has already played 59 games with Golden State. At 65-14, the team is now 4.5 games clear of the San Antonio Spurs, who are going to play as the No. 2 seed in the playoffs.

Davis ranks fourth in the National Basketball Association with an average of 28.0 points per game, while Cousins isn't far behind in sixth with 27.0. Obviously, fans will get a better sense of the rotation when Curry is added back to the fold.
