nba rumors The Warriors announced an updated timetable for Kevin Durant on Wednesday afternoon, saying the forward’s injured knee was progressing well, without setbacks, and he’d be re-evaluated in 7-10 days. Also within the press release: a promise to ramp up Durant’s physical activity, including more lateral movement and explosive cutting. That apparently includes some 1-on-1 against assistant coach Willie Green on Wednesday morning. Bay Area News Group

At this point, Durant is being incorporated into non-contact basketball drills – shooting, running and jumping – and the plan is to intensify his level of movement over the next several days, which will include more explosive cutting and lateral maneuvers. Inside Hoops

The Phoenix Suns have signed forward Jarell Eddie to a second 10-day contract. Eddie initially signed with the Suns on March 19. Eddie has played in five games since joining the Suns and averaged 4.8 points in 12.5 minutes, scoring a career-high 13 points in his debut with the team on March 19 at Detroit. Inside Hoops

The New Orleans Pelicans today signed guard Quinn Cook to a second 10-day contract. Cook, 6-2, 179, who was originally signed by New Orleans on March 19, has appeared in three games with the Pelicans. Inside Hoops

The Indiana Pacers have requested waivers on injured 6-5 guard Rodney Stuckey. Stuckey appeared in 39 games off the bench for Indiana this season while averaging 7.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. In a recent injury report, the Pacers said Stuckey will be out for the next 4-6 weeks. The 2017 NBA playoffs begin in around 2.5 weeks. Inside Hoops

The Warriors, of course, are also leaving Oakland. They will move to an 18,000-seat, privately funded facility in San Francisco before the start of the 2019-20 season. But Kerr and others in the Golden State organization figure there is a stark difference between moving within the same metropolitan area and moving states. San Francisco Chronicle

After Tuesday’s win over the Rockets, forward Draymond Green called the Raiders’ move “ridiculous” and said he doesn’t plan to attend any more of their games. The team will stay in Oakland for the next two seasons, and possibly a third, as it waits for a $1.9 billion domed stadium to be built in Las Vegas. “That’s like moving the Dallas Cowboys or moving the (Green Bay) Packers,” Green said. “Moving the Raiders? You can move a lot of teams, but there aren’t many fan bases like the Raiders’ fan base. It’s like moving the Boston Celtics from Boston or the Lakers from Los Angeles. You just don’t move certain franchises.”
