Warriors head coach Steve Kerr addressed reporters before Kevin Durant's injury was announced. But Kerr was asked about potentially finishing second in the Western Conference, behind the Houston Rockets, and what that would mean. “It's a harrowing experience,” Kerr said with a smile. “I'm just trying to process it all. Second in the conference would just be devastating.” Then Kerr added, “We are not really paying too much attention to the standings. We are just playing. We are in a good position, big picture, no matter what happens because our injuries are all relatively minor. We are very hopeful and confident that we will have everybody back when it counts.”
