Warriors say Kevin Durant will practice before Game 5

On Saturday, it was announced that Warriors star Kevin Durant has been cleared to practice, but has not yet been cleared to play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Durant has not played since straining a calf muscle May 8.

"He's going to practice with us today", Kerr told reporters Sunday, via ESPN.

While Durant's upgrade from out to questionable is a positive sign for a Warriors team desperate for support after falling down 1-3 to the Raptors, there's no guarantee that the forward will see the court.

The Warriors are down 3-1 and on the brink of missing out on a three-peat.

After taking Games 3 and 4 on the road, VanVleet and the Raptors are one win away from the franchise's first championship, and Toronto's first title in North America's four major sports since the Blue Jays won the World Series in 1993. That they haven't dismissed the idea of Durant suiting up in the Monday night tilt in Toronto is a step in the right direction. Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and DeMarcus Cousins are impending free agents, while Iguodala, now 35, is coming off arguably the worst statistical season of his 15-year career. "It's mostly just we're anxious for tomorrow to just get out there and play a great basketball game".

"Their number's gonna be called at different stages throughout this series, like it was in the playoffs, so just be ready to go", he said. I place the word in air quotes because of the number of professional athletes who said that based on the way he reacted the moment he received the injury, it looked strikingly similar to an achilles injury - something that if true could be a huge deal.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr says Durant will get some work in against the team's younger players. "Just win one basketball game, and then we'll worry about the rest".

"It's win or go home for us - we've got no choice but to go out there and be as focused as we can", Bogut said. "I don't care what league, what arena, what stage - especially on the highest stage against the team that's been the best team the last few years - is no small feat". We'll be able to adjust in transition pretty smoothly. The line was down to as low as Toronto -1.5 Sunday at some sportsbooks.
