UPDATES & NEWS
Kevin Durant reportedly would consider the Washington Wizards if he did not re-sign with the Thunder before the start of the 2017 season. (Durant becomes a free agent in 2016).
Durant made it sound like the only place that he would even consider to go to in free agency (if he doesn't return to the Thunder) would be the Wizards. Durant may pull a LeBron James and "return home" to D.C., but a lot can happen between now and 2016, when Durant is eligible for free agency, so don't count on a move to the Wizards right now.

Yunel Escobar said his groin is improving and will work out prior to Sunday's game.
The MRI on Escobar came back clean, so that's great news. He's still not 100-percent though and will continue to be held out. Escobar believes that he can avoid the DL and will work out prior to the game to prove it. Obviously though, if he doesn't show the improvement in the workout, the team could hold him out a little while longer. The club can go with Danny Espinosa at third and Dan Uggla at second. They also called up Emanuel Burris who can play all over the infield. Analysis: Howard Bender
