  • Iguodala 'probable&apos for Game 5 against Rockets

Durant sprained his right calf during the third quarter of the Warriors' 104-99 win over the Rockets on Wednesday. While the Warriors put themselves in good position to advance past Houston even without Durant after coming away with a win in Game 5, their rotation is now paper-thin.

Durant's injury, which will be re-evaluated in a week, comes at a particular time of peril for the Warriors.

Still, the injury could be a serious one - something that prevents Durant from playing against the Houston Rockets in the final games of the Western Conference semifinals. His re-evaluation of next week would rule him out for the remainder of the series against the Houston Rockets, but would give the potential of returning for the Western Conference Finals, if the Warriors can get past Houston.

"Whoever has the ball, no matter if it's off a pick-and-roll, we swing, make the defense work, make decisions on that end of the floor", Curry said. On Thursday, Kerr, while disappointed in Durant's injury, expressed confidence in the team's chances in Game 6. The MRI confirmed the initial diagnosis (strained right calf).

"We're in a great spot, we're up 3-2, we've got championship rings on our fingers and a lot of experience that comes from that", Kerr added.

Durant suffered the injury after pulling up for a jump shot along the baseline. "So let's go out there and let it rip". While they obviously have plenty of firepower, Durant has been by far their best player thus far in the playoffs. "It's not to say its the same, that was a few years ago, but we're comfortable that we can be successful with that group".
