Let the speculation begin.
On Saturday, it was announced that Warriors star Kevin Durant has been cleared to practice, but has not yet been cleared to play in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
After suffering a calf injury in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets, Durant has been sidelined ever since.
Down 3-1 in the 2019 NBA Finals, this could be the break the Warriors desperately need to get back in this series. This is the first time he’s practiced with teammates since his injury so it’s a big step forward ahead of a must-win Game 5 tomorrow at Toronto.
If Durant can somehow play through the injury and even be a shell of his healthy self, this series is far from over.
