We might see Durant spot on the court filled by Andre Iguodala who could likely slide into the starting lineup. This may also open a door for players like Jordan Bell, Jonas Jerebko and Alfonzo McKinnie could see their roles expand.

This season, Durant has continued to shine, posting 27.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.2 blocks per game.

The Warriors are still dangerous without Durant, but surely not as scary. The trio of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green already has led the Warriors to a title before.

No matter what, if Durant is forced to miss significant time, the Warriors remain a threat.
