more tomorrows possible. tomorrow, i want to see teddy bait his first hook. in the largest heart failure study ever, entresto was proven to help more people stay alive and out of the hospital than a leading heart failure medicine. women who are pregnant must not take entresto. it can cause harm or death to an unborn baby. don't take entresto with an ace inhibitor or aliskiren. if you've had angioedema while taking an ace or arb medicine, don't take entresto. the most serious side effects are angioedema, low blood pressure, kidney problems, or high potassium in your blood. tomorrow, i'm gonna step out with my favorite girl. ask your doctor about entresto. and help make the gift of tomorrow possible.

good evening. it's a huge sigh of relief from the golden state warriors. kevin durant, he's hurt but should be back in time for the postseason. the all-star forward was injured in a freak accident last night. early in the game in washington. it was a long, tense evening of the waiting for durant and the team as they awaited word from the doctors. after an mri, then a ct scan, it was determined durant has a sprained medial collateral ligament and bone bruise. the fear was a broken bone or acl tear. that would have meant out the rest of the season. instead, they're saying out indefinitely, to be re-evaluated in four weeks. the playoffs begin in six weeks. if everything goes well, durant should be back in time for the postseas postseason. the warriors' championship hopes are still alive. >> you don't want this to happen any time of the year. we'll suffer for it, there's no doubt. you want your team to be healthy and on all cylinders at all
9:54 pm
times. especially as you make your stretch run. i want a timeline as much as anybody else but sometimes you have to be patient, hard as that is. last night, had to be patient to get the diagnosis. now going to have to be patient as to when he comes back. can't run this part. it's one of those things where now time is what heals it. >> the warriors are going to add insurance, sign former dub matt barnes, recently with sacramento, released to make room following the demarcus cousins trade to new orleans. barnes was part of the we believe warriors in 2007. averaging eight points and five rebounds a game in 54 games this season. from one barnes to the other, mavericks and hawks, hair thon barnes with authority, wow. posterizing paul milsap. barnes led all scorers with 25, throwing it down. hawks won 100-95. cavs/celtics.

9:57 pm
on the quarterback position. how are they going to handle pressure, adversity, no matter how good you are everyone's going to tell you how bad you are sometime during the year. all that stuff goes into play when you're talking about to one of the most scrutinized positions in sports. there's no exact science. some people, all 32 teams are in love with this one guy. he's out of the league in two years. meaning all 30 teams didn't know what they were doing. it's tough. the more resources, better chance to make the right decision. >> vikings passed on adrian peterson are he's a free agent, reportedly intrigued by playing for the raiders. peterson likes their offensive line but he's going to turn 32, played only three games last year because of a torn meniscus. last night's boise state/fresno state men's basketball game. the ball wedged under the shot clock. they try to use a broom to get it down. guys are jumping. then this guy just hoists this kid up there. he goes up like junior spider-man. retrieves the ball.
