Durant has been out with a strained calf since Game 5 of the second round series against the Rockets and the Warriors have won six straight games since he went down, including a four-game sweep of the Trail Blazers in the Western Conference Finals.
KD’s calf strain was feared to be an Achilles injury but no major news outlets confirmed that theory.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr recently talked to ESPN’s Nick Friedell about Durant’s potential return date:
DeMarcus Cousins tore his left quad in Game 2 of the first round series against the Clippers on April 15 and initially he was expected to miss the remainder of the playoffs. Durant and Cousins will be evaluated next Wednesday and there’s a decent chance they could come back this season, especially KD.
