Warriors mailbag: Will Kevin Durant return in the NBA Finals?
Kevin Durant will return to practice this Sunday and is expected to play this Monday in Toronto the fifth game of the NBA Finals. The desperate situation of the Golden State Warriors, who lose 3-1 and need to win to prevent the Toronto Raptors take the title, will force the reappearance of the forward, unpublished in this final because of a muscle problem in a twin.
The Warriors‘ leading scorer, who suffered a muscle injury to the calf in the fifth meeting of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets, has not been able to play the last eight games, including the first four of the final. The player has just one month low.
“Today he will do more things. We will see later how he is, “coach Steve Kerr told reporters who follow the final.
Durant is the great offensive reference of the Warriors with Stephen Curry. In the regular phase he averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists and in the playoff he had raised his numbers to 34.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists.
