Durant finished with 26 points (8-25 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 9-10 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 37 minutes in Sunday's 104-92 loss to the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

Durant's fifth double-double of the season to go along with another solid assist total salvaged what was otherwise a brutal day from the field and three-point range. Perhaps as a result of co-star Stephen Curry (groin) being out of the lineup, Durant may be beginning to feel the effects of defenses focusing most of their effort on stopping him, as he's shooting just 39.1 percent from the field and has gone 1-for-19 from distance over the past four games. It hasn't helped matters that those games have come within a six-day stretch, but Durant will have some time to pick up some needed rest with the Warriors off the schedule until Wednesday at home against the Thunder.

Durant finished with 32 points (11-24 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 10-11 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and one block in 36 minutes during Saturday's 112-109 loss to the Mavericks.

EDGE Analysis

Durant was solid as ever in Saturday's loss, finishing with 32 points to lead all scorers. His peripheral stats were uncharacteristically low for the second straight game, which could have something to do with being asked to do more on the offensive end. Nonetheless, Durant remains one of the more elite fantasy options and will look to keep things going against the Spurs on Sunday.

Durant registered 29 points (9-23 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 11-11 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 37 minutes in the Warriors' 110-103 win over the Hawks on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

One night after a much-publicized dust-up with teammate Draymond Green and a grueling overtime loss to the Clippers, Durant's shot wasn't at its sharpest. However, the multi-time All-Star managed to generate another impressive final line with a perfect showing from the free-throw line, leading to his third straight game with more than 25 points. Differences with Green aside, Durant's fantasy prospects naturally remain as bright as ever, and they even tick up a notch further as long as Stephen Curry (groin) remains out of action.

Durant generated 33 points (10-24 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 11-13 FT), 11 rebounds, 10 assists, two blocks and one steal across 39 minutes in the Warriors' 121-116 overtime loss to the Clippers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

In conjunction with Klay Thompson, Durant spearheaded a Warriors attack that was still missing Stephen Curry (groin). The All-Star forward's scoring total qualified as his second 30-point effort in five November games, and the triple-double was his first of the season. Naturally, Durant's night would have been even bigger had he not fouled out with 3:46 remaining in overtime. Despite the premature exit and some in-game tensions with teammate Draymond Green, Durant's night was arguably his most fruitful of the campaign, although his usage will naturally take at least a slight hit once Curry is able to return to action.

Durant finished with 28 points (9-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-9 FT), 11 assists, five rebounds, two steals, and one block in 30 minutes during Saturday's 116-100 victory over the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Durant was simply too good for the Nets Saturday, dominating on both ends of the floor. He recorded a season-high 11 assists with both Draymond Green (toe) and Stephen Curry (groin) on the sidelines, only emphasizing his ability to do whatever is needed on a nightly basis. If Curry is forced to miss further time, Durant could see a nice boost to his scoring, something that is certainly not unfamiliar to him.

Durant produced 17 points (6-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine assists, five rebounds and one block across 31 minutes in the Warriors' 134-111 loss to the Bucks on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Warriors appeared stuck in neutral compared to the Bucks for most of the night, and Durant's solid but unspectacular stat line was a fitting representation of such. The perennial All-Star didn't really step up his contributions in the wake of Stephen Curry's third-quarter exit from the game with an adductor muscle injury, leading to his second-lowest scoring total this season. This performance aside, Durant is likely in for a significant boost in scoring responsibility if Curry misses multiple games, something the former proved quite capable of handling last season during the latter's extended absences.

Durant supplied 22 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six rebounds, six assists and one steal across 32 minutes in the Warriors' 117-101 win over the Grizzlies on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Durant checked in second behind Klay Thompson in scoring on the night while posting his best shooting percentage (63.6) of the last five games. The multi-time All-Star has unsurprisingly hit the 20- point mark in all but one game this season, an accomplishment greatly facilitated by Durant's career-high 56.5 field-goal percentage and 92.5 percent success rate from the free-throw line.

Durant finished with 33 points (11-19 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 8-9 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, and one block in 36 minutes during Friday's 116-99 victory over the Timberwolves.

EDGE Analysis

Durant was dynamic Friday, helping the Warriors to a 17 point victory over a dogged Timberwolves team. Such is the talent on the Warriors roster, Durant was simply next man up, taking control of the offense when required. There is not a lot you can say about Durant other than to keep him active no matter the schedule given he is one of the more consistent studs out there.

Durant totaled 24 points (10-17 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, five rebounds, and two steals in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 131-121 victory over New Orleans.

EDGE Analysis

Durant was his normal solid self Wednesday, chipping in 24 points to go with eight assists and five rebounds. This is a fairly standard line for Durant, emphasizing how good he is in both fantasy and reality. He is less likely to have an explosion like Anthony Davis or James Harden but is about as reliable a first-round player as you will find.

Durant produced 34 points (11-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 10-11 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 39 minutes in Sunday's 120-114 win over the Nets.

EDGE Analysis

Durant came into the game averaging 29.7 points and 8.2 rebounds in his first six contests, and Sunday's outing will push him closer to career highs in those categories that he set in 2013. He's a must-start in all seasonal formats but commands a steep price in DFS contests.
