Durant has not played for the Golden State Warriors since pulling up lame in Game 5 of their Conference Semifinals series against the Houston Rockets. Golden State heads into Game 5 down 3-1 against Toronto, in desperate need of Durant’s offensive firepower.
Before his injury, Durant was having a phenomenal postseason, averaging 34.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.2 steals per game.
