    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Unlikely to play in Game 1

    Kevin Durant (calf) is still not taking part in on-court activities and is unlikely to play at the start of the 2019 NBA Finals.It's certainly not a great sign that Durant has still not been cleared for on-court work just a week away from the start of the Finals, and it suggests that even if Durant does make it back before the series ends, he will not be at 100 percent. Alfonzo McKinnie got the start in Game 4 against Portland, but if healthy, Andre Iguodala (calf) would likely return to the starting five for Game 1.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Out through Game 4

    Kevin Durant (calf) won't travel to Portland and will miss Game 3 and Game 4 against the Trail Blazers, Brian Witt of the Golden State Warriors' official site reports.Durant was already ruled out of Game 2 but the team had held out hope he'd be able to return on the road in the Western Conference Finals. It's no guarantee he'll return for Game 5, should the series go that far, but that's the soonest he can play. For the time being look for Andre Iguodala, who's starting in Durant's place, to continue seeing extra minutes.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Out for Game 2

    Kevin Durant (calf), as expected, is out for Thursday's Game 2 against the Trail Blazers, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.Durant missing Game 2 was nearly a certainty, but this news officially ends speculation. He'll be re-evaluated later in the week with hopes of playing in Game 3, which is Saturday. It wouldn't be surprising if he's out until late in the series, or possibly the Finals.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: To be re-evaluated later in week

    Kevin Durant (calf) will be re-evaluated later in the week but will almost certainly miss Games 1 and 2 of the Western Conference Finals, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.The Golden State Warriors already ruled Durant out of Game 1 earlier Monday, but coach Steve Kerr provided more detail after practice, revealing that Durant is yet to step foot on the court since suffering the injury in Game 5 against Houston. Kerr noted that Durant is still experiencing pain in his right calf, and he's set to be evaluated later in the week. That implies he'll be held out of Games 1 (Tuesday) and 2 (Thursday), and his status from that point on will hinge on how well the calf responds to rehab.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Ruled out for Game 1

    Kevin Durant (calf) will not play in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday, and he's "unlikely" to play in Thursday's Game 2, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN reports.While the Golden State Warriors haven't provided much in terms of detail on Durant's status, this doesn't come as much of a surprise considering he suffered the calf strain less than a week ago. The two-time reigning Finals MVP is set to be reevaluated on Thursday, so there's a slight chance he could be cleared for Game 2, but Shelburne's tweet intimates that it's much more likely Durant misses a third straight contest. Golden State was able to close out Houston in Game 6 without Durant's services, so expect Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to continue to handle a larger share of the offensive burden in Durant's absence. In Game 6, the Warriors started Andrew Bogut at center, shifting Draymond Green to power forward, with Andre Iguodala remaining in the lineup at at small forward.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: To be re-evaluated next week

    Kevin Durant suffered a mild right calf strain in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Rockets and will be re-evaluated at some point next week, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.With Durant's calf strain being confirmed following additional testing and the superstar not being evaluated until next week, it's now confirmed that the Golden State Warriors will be without their top scorer if Game 7 against Houston becomes necessary. The good news for Durant is that it doesn't appear to be an injury that will require a long-term recovery, so there is still an optimistic outlook on his basketball future as a whole. For now, however, Golden State will have to ride its sharp-shooting backcourt through the weekend if the team wishes to advance to the Western Conference Finals.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Slated to miss Game 6

    Coach Steve Kerr ruled Kevin Durant out for the Golden State Warriors' Game 6 matchup Friday with the Rockets after the forward was diagnosed with a right calf strain following Wednesday's Game 5 victory, Tim Kawakami of The Athletic reports. "He's not going to play Game 6," Kerr said of Durant. "We can all pretend and just say he's doubtful. But he's not playing Game 6."Durant initially looked like he may have suffered a significant Achilles injury when he landed awkwardly during a shot attempt in third quarter, resulting in his removal from the contest. Fortunately for the Warriors, the team's initial examinations revealed that he merely suffered a calf injury, which won't end his season but could put his availability at risk of the rest of the second round. Based on Kerr's comments, it's not expected that Durant will travel with the team to Houston, so the All-Star will presumably remain in Oakland to receive further treatment with the hope of returning for a potential Game 7. Durant is slated to undergo an MRI on Thursday, at which point a clearer timeline for his return may be established.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Done for Game 5

    Kevin Durant will not rejoin the action during Wednesday's Game 5 due to a right calf strain.Many surmised Durant's injury may have been serious, so a calf strain likely comes as a relief for the Golden State Warriors. Jonas Jerebko figures to see additional usage with the star forward sidelined the remainder of the night, while Durant should be considered questionable at best for Game 6 on Friday.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Heads to locker room

    Kevin Durant limped to the locker room in the third quarter of Wednesday's Game 5 against the Rockets, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports.Durant looked at the back of his leg as he attempted to return to the defensive end of the floor following a made jump shot. The team should update his status more following some tests, but a major injury could be a huge blow for a Golden State Warriors squad already without the services of Demarcus Cousins (quad). Jonas Jerebko may be in line for additional minutes if Durant is forced to miss time.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Continues to dominate despite loss

    Kevin Durant tallied 34 points (12-22 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-10 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one block in 43 minutes during Monday's 112-108 loss to the Rockets.Durant led the way for the Golden State Warriors once again scoring a team-best 34 points on 12-of-22 shooting. Unfortunately, he was not able to pull out the victory, missing a shot late that would have tied the game. He is putting together a memorable run of performances but it will matter very little if the Warriors can't get the job done as they hunt for their third straight title. Game 5 will be on Wednesday and fans will be hoping the return to Oakland will be enough to spark the team back into the winners' circle.
