The Thunder announced that their star point guard will miss Tuesday's opener against the Golden State Warriors as he continues to recover from an off-season right knee procedure.

After the Warriors received their rings Tuesday night and followed the celebration up with an easy victory over the Thunder, Tony posted an Instagram comment on his brother's post, writing, "Filling the hand up before we get outta here!"

It's hard to imagine any team actually boasting more talent than the Warriors, though, especially once DeMarcus Cousins joins a starting lineup featuring Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Paul George had a team-high 27 points and Dennis Schroder made his Oklahoma City debut with 21 points. It is not a definite that he will return to the two-time defending champions.

What he does next is anyone's guess, but, if you're a Knicks or Lakers fan - you have already started the countdown clock to July 1, 2019, the beginning of National Basketball Association free agency.

The Thunder's second game of the season is Friday at the L.A. Clippers. How is Durant going to handle that? He holds career averages of 23.0 points, 8.2 assists and 6.6 rebounds per game in 748 games, averaging a triple-double in each of the last two seasons and winning the 2016-17 MVP award.

A free throw by Durant with 3:04 left in the half gave Golden State a 53-39 lead, which the Thunder trimmed to 57-47 by halftime.
