Kevin Durant out for Game 2 of the NBA Finals

Warriors

TORONTO (KRON) — Kevin Durant will not play in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Friday. 

Durant, the two-time reigning Finals MVP, missed the past five games since straining his right calf in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston.

He traveled with the team to Toronto for the start of the series. 

Kerr said Durant’s been doing well in rehab the last couple of days, but he will not play Sunday. 

“I guess I’ve been holding out hope,” Kerr said. “He’s still progressing but it’s near impossible for him to play on Sunday.”
