Down to Dunk Podcast: Northwest Division preview and KEVIN IS DOWN

We preview the Northwest Division and talk about how the Thunder have to cope with Kevin Durant out for an extended period.

Kevin Durant is out with a Jones fracture. I'm sure we will hear about how Jay and Kevin are now injury bros. We give some insight to the injury and recovery, and what the team will do without the reigning MVP. Players like Jeremy Lamb, Reggie Jackson, Andre Roberson, Perry Jones and Steven Adams will have a chance to carve out significant roles with Durant out. Which one of these guys will step up? Will the team still contend for the 1st or 2nd seed in the West? Look for those answers on today's podcast.

We also take a look at the Northwest Division. Will the Portland Trail Blazers take a step forward or a step back? Can a Denver Nuggets team stacked with mediocrity contend for a playoff spot? How fun and bad will the Minnesota Timberwolves be? Will anyone step up and give the Utah Jazz some hope? Oh and we talk about that one team from Oklahoma City too.
