Kevin Durant Planning to Play in Game 5 of NBA Finals

Kevin Durant Planning to Play in Game 5 of NBA Finals

Kevin Durant practiced on Monday morning but the Golden State Warriors will wait before deciding if he plays in Game 5 of the National Basketball Association finals. The Warriors trail the Toronto Raptors 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, meaning their quest for a third consecutive National Basketball Association championship could end on Monday.

Durant spent about 25 minutes on the court before leaving toward the end of the Warriors' shootaround session for continued treatment.

This past Sunday, Durant was practicing with the team, with Steve Kerr saying "He looked good, we'll see where it goes".

We wrote about a report that angst was mounting in the Warriors' locker room earlier today.

Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game with the Warriors this season.

Kerr was asked if he had any reservations about Durant's ability if he is ultimately cleared to play in Game 5 of the finals. "He's doing more today, and then we'll know more after that", Kerr said, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. He's been in similar situations with us where he's had long layoffs.

Kevin Durant has been cleared to practice with the Warriors and the 2019 NBA Finals has taken another turn.

Ahead of the game, Pelosi, who is from San Francisco and an ardent Warriors fan, says she'll send Ghirardelli chocolate, California wine and a smattering of almonds and walnuts from her home state should Golden State fail to win yet another title.
