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.
