If the Rockets can continue that trend in Game 6, Durant's availability for Game 7 would become a huge storyline.
If it's a Grade 1 strain, then Durant is likely out for the rest of the playoffs if they advance.
"A lot of it is factored into this spot in Game 6 where obviously Houston's backs are against the wall". On Wednesday night, the Warriors got a dose of what losing a star player means before they managed to hold off the Rockets and secure a 104-99 win. "When I walked into the coach's office after the game, the replay of the play was going on".
Durant will not travel with the Warriors to Houston for game six, instead remaining in the San Francisco Bay region for treatment ahead of being re-evaluated next week.
Durant will be reevaluated next week, according to a statement released by the Warriors on Thursday.
Pelosi says Trump has created a 'constitutional crisis'
White House officials say they have directed former White House counsel Don McGahn not to cooperate with a House investigation. In the report, Mueller concluded that there was no evidence of collusion by Trump, anyone on his campaign, or any US citizen.
"I think it's good news". "It's a hard one to say, it really is".
Durant's injury came with 2:11 left in the third quarter as he went up for a jumper over Rockets swingman Iman Shumpert.
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.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr and guard Stephen Curry noted that Durant was understandably down after the injury, but there was a palpable sense of relief within the locker room that his injury wasn't more severe.
Durant is an National Basketball Association finals Most Valuable Player the past two seasons after leading the Warriors to back-to-back crowns.
"If Kevin is out, then what you saw in the fourth quarter is what you're gonna have to see going forward", Kerr said.
