Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (knee) will start and won't have any minute restriction for Saturday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. It only helps, of course, that Durant has already played 59 games with Golden State. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Watch the action on NBC Sports Bay Area, or listen to the call on 95.7 The Game on the Warriors Radio Network. "I just didn't get here yesterday", Durant said. Now, that big picture is here as Kevin Durant is ready to return. C Damian Jones (D-League assignment) is not with team.

Pelicans injury report: C Omer Asik (illness), C DeMarcus Cousins (right Achilles tendonitis), PF Anthony Davis (left knee soreness) and SG Quincy Pondexter (left knee) are out. At 33-45, they now sit 10th in the Western Conference standings, but have already been mathematically eliminated from a postseason berth. Compared to the Warriors who finish the season with three-straight home games, all four of New Orleans remaining games are on the road, including a game in Denver on Friday night. However, it hardly bodes well for the Pelicans that Golden State is holding opponents to 99.9 points on 41.6 percent shooting during its current 13-game winning streak.
