Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr announced at his media availability ahead of Game 5 that Kevin Durant (calf) would practice today. Durant will get some work in with the younger players after practice.
When Durant arrived for practice, a video showed Durant walking through the tunnel with a slight limp. Without Kevin Durant in the lineup in the last four contests, the Golden State Warriors have managed only one victory, and by all accounts, it was a game the Raptors let slip away due to poor shooting.
Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game in the regular season. Durant was shooting 51.3% from the field, 41.6% from beyond the arc and 90.1% from the free throw line.

"That's what I did from that point on, bet on myself and trust that I really felt what I was doing and really believed in it".
How Durant responds and recovers will dictate his return.
"It's just having another powerful weapon out there who can do some very dynamic things on the floor", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. For the most part, Durant hadn't even looked close to coming back this postseason. "He's been in plenty of Finals and has played well".
Police raids sought to intimidate media: ABC Chair
It's understood the names of ABC's director Gaven Morris and journalists Dan Oakes and Sam Clark are against the warrant. A similar raid was carried out earlier this week at the home of a journalist in Australia's capital, Canberra.
The Warriors trail the Toronto Raptors 3-1 in the series, and need three straight wins to capture a third straight championship. That same year, they dug out of a 3-1 hole against Durant's Oklahoma City Thunder to win the Western Conference finals. "I think it's pretty easy to realize we obviously miss him out there. No matter what percentage he's at, I'm sure he'll be impactful and effective".
As for his other key players - Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney - he said both came through Game 5 well and will play Monday. The series price was down to Toronto -575 as of Sunday at Caesars Sportsbook.
