Hamidou Diallo of Oklahoma City Thunder carted off with leg injury

Both Green and Durant are back on the same floor for Golden State, and in a recent interview with Yahoo Sports Durant said that the row won't have any effect on him choosing to stay or leave the Warriors.

He was carted off on a stretcher with 7:17 left after crashing to the floor and colliding with Warriors forward Jonas Jerebko.

Aside from Diallo's injury, there was positive news for the Thunder, who picked up their fourth win in five games by defeating the Warriors 123-95.

At first glance it appeared to be a severe ankle injury. Diallo was to be re-examined Thursday in Oklahoma. Nerlens Noel received stitches after getting hit in the face during the second quarter.

Nevertheless, that rating has plummeted the past three games to just 0.974 points per possession.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan was particularly pleased with the performance as it came at the end of a hard three-game road trip. Point guard Russell Westbrook recorded his first triple double of the season, too, dropping 11 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds.

With the tirade between the two causing aftershocks at Golden State, there's speculation that Durant might be ready to move on through free agency in the summer.

He could still opt to re-sign with the Warriors, who will begin playing at Chase Center next season after 47 years at Oakland's Oracle Arena.

He has struggled on the court during the Warriors' 1-4 stretch, shooting 3-for-21 from 3-point range.

While Golden State dropped 10 of its final 17 games last season, the Warriors hadn't endured a four-game losing streak during the regular season since dropping four in a row from February 26-March 2, 2013.

"We're doing what we can and I think people will appreciate it, but obviously those people up there need much more than just to be able to come to a basketball game", Kerr said.
