It has been a long wait for all the fans since Kevin Durant was injured against the 2nd round of the playoffs vs the Houston Rockets.
A strained calf injury believed to heal in a few days has lasted a month and the Warriors are deeply missing him and trying to climb out of a 1-3 NBA Finals deficit.
It is now reported that Kevin Durant has been cleared for practice and joined the team on Sunday 6/9/2019 in the hopes that he can play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals 2019.
Steve Kerr has this to say on Kevin Durant practice:
“Yeah, He’s doing more today, and we’ll know more after that.”
Kerr response if Kevin is going to play on Game 5:
“It’s feasible. But again, it’s really a day-to-day thing. If we had a crystal ball, we would have known a long time ago what we were dealing with. It’s just an injury; there’s been a lot of gray area. So literally it’s just day to day and how the progress is coming.”
Kevin Durant is officially listed as questionable for Game 5 but we will know his status later today.
