Durant will miss remainder of Warriors series with Rockets

  • Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry reacts after not drawing a foul late in the second half of Game 4 of a second-round NBA basketball playoff series against the Houston Rockets Monday

A year ago, the Houston Rockets saw Chris Paul go down with a hamstring injury that forced him out of Game 6 and Game 7 and led to a series loss to the eventual National Basketball Association champions, the Golden State Warriors.

However, the Warriors were likely relieved to learn that he merely suffered a mild calf strain. Durant will not travel with the Warriors to Houston for Friday's Game 6, the team said, instead remaining in the Bay Area for treatment before being reevaluated next week. He will be re-evaluated next week. I thought the same thing, because he kind of looked back like he had been kicked or something. Calf strain, he's had them before.

Kevin Durant's leg injury could have a major impact not only on how the 2019 playoffs conclude but how the league takes shape this summer in a year where several superstars will become free agents.

It signals that House Democrats will get enough votes to accept Nadler's recommendation for contempt on Barr. The full Democratically controlled House would then vote on the rebuke.

Last season, Durant missed three games over a one-week span with a right calf strain. "When I walked into the coach's office after the game, the replay of the play was going on". He limped toward the Rockets' bench, and after a few moments, he went straight to the Warriors' locker room, accompanied by trainers and Myers. That gave us a chance to win down the stretch with how hard we played on that end of the floor.

After they had won, celebrated a little and then wearily walked back into the locker room, the Warriors saw Durant and heard the relatively good news - it wasn't an Achilles tear, but he was out indefinitely and nearly certainly out for the next few games. Additionally, the Warriors are now +140 to win the title, compared to -110 prior to their Game 5 victory.

"He's been phenomenal", Kerr said. But Kerr, who is expected to address the media again Thursday night after the team's charter lands in Texas, was proud of his players for fighting until the end of Wednesday's game. "Keep the feeling, take care of business at home, then we will come back here and try to get it". "Not just a game is a game", Sherman said.
