The announcement was made through Twitter Wednesday.

The Warriors lost a Barnes to gain Kevin Durant in the offseason.

The Golden State Warriors suffered a huge setback, and their championship title chances suffered a huge blow after Kevin Durant got injured while playing against the Wizards.

The Golden State Warriors are looking beefy as they rip through opponents in both conferences.

The injury occurred when Washington's Marcin Gortat went for a rebound and pushed Golden State's Zaza Pachulia, who fell on Durant's leg. The Warriors can survive and advance without Durant for one round.

While the idea that these could have originated from non-life was entertained for awhile, it was dismissed after careful analysis. Dodd continued to say that when the structures were developed, both Earth and Mars would have had liquid water on their surfaces.

For the Redskins franchise, Kirk Cousins is "it".
Cousins record against.500 teams is 5-13 and that number drops to 2-11 when he is facing teams with nine or more wins. He loved playing for new 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan when he was the Washington Redskins' offensive coordinator.

It's a good thing Durant didn't listen to Joel Embiid back in May of a year ago, when he jokingly tried to recruit him to come to Philadelphia. It was the Warriors first loss in a game where Green dished out at least 10 assists (36-1). With the addition of Kevin Durant in the offseason, they have one of the most talented rosters in National Basketball Association history and are a clear favorite to win another title this season. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game.

If Durant does return at exactly the four-week mark, the Warriors will have six regular season games left.

As reported by ESPN, Barnes will sign a deal for the rest of the season, not a 10-day contract. The backup point guard also played big around the rim defensively, coming up with two huge blocks down the stretch.

Wish I could bring you two with me! Barnes told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears. "I liked how we came back after we were thrown for a loop early on". He's fortunate the injury is not as bad as originally feared on Tuesday night. Jose Calderon had committed to signing with the Warriors once he cleared waivers. In Durant's absence, we should expect to see Thompson going into the post more, and spotting up for 3-pointers a bit less.

The likes of Barnes, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, and James Michael McAdoo will be the ones stepping up as Durant holds an uncertain future. The Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. But Curry is still Curry, and the Warriors are still the same juggernaut they were before adding Durant.
