Steve Kerr Reveals Kevin Durant’s Status For Game 6

If the Rockets can continue that trend in Game 6, Durant's availability for Game 7 would become a huge storyline.

Kevin Durant landed awkwardly after a shot with 2:05 left in the third quarter.

If it's a Grade 1 strain, then Durant is likely out for the rest of the playoffs if they advance.

Last season, Durant missed three games over a one-week span with a right calf strain.

"I don't think there's going to be many people looking to bet the Warriors in this game, so might as well tax it on the higher side of Houston", Jeff Sherman, Las Vegas SuperBook vice president of risk, told ESPN.

The Warriors will get their first opportunity to earn advancement in Game 6 of the series on Friday night in Houston.

"They'll bounce back and we'll be ready on Friday".

Durant did not appear to make contact with Shumpert, but after landing, he took a few steps up the court, then clutched his right leg. Durant limped toward the Rockets' bench, and after a few moments, he went straight to the Warriors' locker room, accompanied by trainers and general manager Bob Myers. That spread would be the largest Golden State has faced with Steph Curry in the lineup and Steve Kerr as head coach - a span of 440 games dating back to 2014, including the postseason. "It's a hard one to say, it really is".

By comparison, Houston was favored by 3.5 at home in Game 3 and Golden State was favored by 1 in Game 4 on the road. The injury came late in the third quarter after Durant had put up 22 points in 32 minutes of play. While they obviously have plenty of firepower, Durant has been by far their best player thus far in the playoffs.

"It's not the Achilles'", Kerr said.

"Hopefully", Kerr said, "we get Kevin back at some point".
