Kevin Durant plans to play in Game 5 of The Finals.
Durant has been out since May 8th when he suffered a calf injury.
The Golden State Warriors are saying Durant will be “a game-time decision.”
Steve Kerr admitted that the timeline for Durant’s injury has been frustrating.
“And we talked about it when the injury occurred, pretty vague a lot of gray area, one of the first things [Warriors director of sports and performance] Rick [Celebrini] told me with calves, it could be a couple weeks, it could be a couple months,” Kerr said. “And it’s not often you have injuries like that. Usually you kind of get that 4-6 week think or 2-3 weeks and so calves, Achilles, muscular stuff, it’s a little tougher to gauge than a joint. And when you combine that with the scrutiny and the media coverage of The Finals, we’ve just been in the spotlight, he’s been in the spotlight, and it’s been tough.”
