They're set to share a locker room for the first time since last season - this time as teammates on the Western Conference All-Star team.
Asked if he'll use the opportunity to make amends with his ex-teammate, Durant said he doesn't know.
"It isn't even something I'm thinking about, to be honest," he said Friday on SportsCenter. "If it happens organically, it does, but I'm not planning to do anything. ... If it happens, it does. If it doesn't, it's no big deal."
Instead, the former MVP's priority is to enjoy the weekend's festivities.
"I'm going to handle All-Star weekend like I always do. Get in and get out. Do everything I'm supposed to do. Play the game and have some fun. I ain't come here for it to be any drama or have a heart to heart with anybody," he explained.
"It's hard," he admitted. "It's a thin line, because you care so much about the fan base and the support that they give. But at the same time, you can't live your life solely based off of what other people want for you. Even your family, even your friends, you gotta make a decision for yourself. That's what I did. I respect anybody that does that.
"It is a fine line between knowing that you represent a fan base and they care so much about you. That's what made it so tough, but sometimes you gotta make the hard decision."
Warriors bench boss Steve Kerr is coaching the West squad, and wouldn't say whether he'll play KD and Russ together.
