The Golden State Warriors will continue through the Western Conference finals without Kevin Durant — at least for the foreseeable future.
Durant, who suffered a strained right calf in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinals series against the Houston Rockets last week, is “not close” to being ready to return, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shellburne.
“He has made progress, but it’s a little more serious than we thought at the very beginning,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Thursday night. “So we’ll see where it all goes. But he’s in there all day long getting treatment. He’s done a great job of committing himself to that process … Hopefully he’ll be back at some point, but we’ll just wait and see.”
