Dammit.

NewsOK.com is reporting today that Kevin Durant feels just fine and will play against the Grizzlies in Memphis tonight. Our former managing editor summed it up very well with a quick tweet.

Indeed, Kevin.

: ( and *crying* would have also been appropriate reactions. I'm all for seeing their best against our best, but without Tony Allen and Marc Gasol this matchup becomes not-quite-as-fun for Grizzlies fans. I'd imagine we'll see Tayshaun Prince covering Durant for the first 6 minutes of the game, and while I haven't looked up any history on that matchup ... I'm not incredibly excited about it's possibilities.

An option that could provide a bit more fun might come when we inevitably see James Johnson put on Kevin Durant. I just hope KD isn't sitting at 20+ pts when we finally see it.

But hey, I'm not going to leave you all on a downer. Check out this note of interest:
