Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant suffered an MCL sprain and bone bruise on his left knee earlier this week during a game against the Washington Wizards. As Durant is out “indefinitely,” the Warriors will have to look towards Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green to help take the team to the NBA Finals. However, Charles Barkley is not convinced. Declaring on Thursday during TNT’s Inside the NBA, Barkley stated the Warriors have “zero chance at winning the championship” without an injured Kevin Durant. Barkley went on to say:
“Without Kevin Durant, they’ve got zero chance at winning the championship. Actually, with the additions the Cavaliers have made, they probably are the leader in the clubhouse. But without Kevin Durant, they’ve got no chance at winning the championship. Zero…If they don’t have Kevin Durant, I don’t even think they get out of the West.”
