Updating shower

Hi all.
I have been a member for about a year now and have decided to redo my shower stall. It is currently a builder grade shower (acrylic pan center drain 34x48 and cultured marble walls) with sliding doors.

I want to make the shower wider by roughly 4-5" as the existing curb is inset by that amount from the wall.

This is on a second floor master bath. The subfloor is osb 3/4".

My plan is to tear out the existing pan and walls and install the durock pre sloped shower system.

The closest sloped pan I can find for my application is a 48x48 pan. Now that my drain is already centered, can I just cut the pre sloped foam more from one of the sides to keep the drain hole "centered" with the pre slope? Will there be draining issues with one side a bit lower? The 48" long will remain, just the width needs to be about 39".

I was also wanting to do a walk in type curbless setup. I understand that the subfloor would need cut out.
