It's just general knowledge of the game of basketball. Games in which you don't play in don't hurt or benefit you.
If Durant sits out a game during the season, they aren't going to average in a 0 to his points per game average.

I don't know where there is a extensive "rulebook" for the NBA, but I'm sure if you research and look on the internet, you'd come across one.

On 1/25/13 vs the Hawks, Rajon Rondo tore his ACL and played the remaining 13 mins with the tear. He ended the game with a triple double - 16 pts, 11 rebs, 10 asts. He wanted to play the next game. You can't question his heart.
