The Golden State Warriors and the Chicago Bulls will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at United Center.

ABOUT THE WARRIORS (50-10): Golden State is expected to bring in veteran forward Matt Barnes to fill Durant’s roster spot as the team navigates a rough portion of the schedule that includes five of six on the road to begin March. “I’m definitely relieved,” All-Star forward Draymond Green told ESPN of Durant’s injury. “I thought it would be way worse. Being away weeks sucks, but we will take that over what was initially thought.” An uptick in production from Stephen Curry could help ease the transition to life without Durant for the time being, as the reigning two-time MVP is just 2-of-20 from 3-point range over the last two games.

ABOUT THE BULLS (30-30):
Chicago had a four-game winning streak come to an end when it allowed a season high in points and watched star swingman Jimmy Butler go cold in a 125-107 home loss to the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. Butler managed eight points on 3-of-13 shooting and is shooting 33.9 percent from the floor in three games since the All-Star break. “I don’t know what it was,” Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg told reporters of Butler’s shooting woes on Tuesday. “We just couldn’t get him into the flow, into the rhythm. We ran a lot of actions for Jimmy that normally he converts on. Jimmy, he’s going to be fine. He’ll bounce back. We’ll have a good practice (Wednesday) and hopefully play great on Thursday.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Warriors listed as 7½-point favorites versus the Bulls, while the game’s total is sitting at 220.

The Golden State Warriors escaped the worst of the possible outcomes from Kevin Durant‘s knee injury on Tuesday night, but they will still be without one of their superstars for an extended period. The Warriors will be without Durant, who was diagnosed with a bone bruise and an MCL sprain in his right leg, for at least the next four weeks, beginning with a visit to the Chicago Bulls on Thursday.

Durant went down two minutes into Tuesday’s 112-108 loss at Washington when center Zaza Pachulia was shoved to the ground and fell back into Durant’s leg, bending the knee awkwardly and leading to great concern among the Golden State staff and players. The worst fears were pushed aside when the MRI results were released on Wednesday, and the All-Star forward will be evaluated in four weeks and could return before the end of the regular season. “Is it good news to miss one of your players with an injury like this? No, that’s not good news,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers told reporters on a conference call. “But I guess it could be worse, I suppose.” Chicago fans can sympathize with Warriors fans after watching a young Derrick Rose win an MVP award and spend the next few seasons dealing with a series of knee injuries that torpedoed the team’s chances.

In their last action, Chicago was a 125-107 loser at home against the Nuggets. They failed to cover the -2.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (232) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

Last time out for Golden State, they were a 112-108 loser as they battled the Wizards on the road. The Warriors failed to cover in the match as a -7-point favorite, while 220 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
