The question of whether or not Kevin Durant would play in the NBA Finals continued to go toward a “no” answer which was unfortunate for a team that was obviously lost without him. 

The Game 4 Warriors’ 105-92 loss to the Toronto Raptors was KD-less, but as far as his status for the fifth game of the series goes, it remains unknown.

For now, we do know he will be traveling with the team up north which is about as promising of news as we could hope for:

And as Anthony Slater reported, any news on Durant’s status should be announced on Sunday.

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said prior to Game 4 the 10-time All-Star “just isn’t ready.” Not only was his body not ready, but the trainers and even KD himself didn’t believe he was ready.

“He tried to do some stuff in practice yesterday, it didn’t work,” Windhorst reported.

Durant suffered a strained right calf injury during the third quarter of Game 5 in the Warriors’ second-round NBA playoff series against the Houston Rockets.
