Durant exits due to right calf strain

Durant exits due to right calf strain

The Warriors lead the Houston Rockets 3-2 heading into Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal series on Friday (ESPN, 9 p.m. ET). "We've always done well at home and we just have to keep it that way". He said after the loss that he'd be fine for Game 5, but his status - play or not; start or not - will be a game-time decision. I have to go back and look at the game. Thompson followed Green's 3 with one of his own to make it 97-89 with 2:33 remaining.

Durant left Wednesday's contest with a right calf strain which he suffered without receiving any contact.

During the third quarter of Wednesday night's game, Durant pulled up lame on his right lower leg after hitting a jumper. The Warriors can close out the series with their first win in Houston, but must do so without the services of Kevin Durant, who is out of the NBA Playoffs 2019 indefinitely because of a calf strain. "I'm proud of our guys for pulling the game out, and we'll see how Kevin is doing (Thursday)". "We'll see what happens in the next couple days".

Durant was averaging 33.2 points, five rebounds, and 4.4 assists in 33.2 minutes per game against Houston prior to getting hurt.

There was instant speculation from the TNT broadcasting crew that Durant might have torn his Achilles' tendon, but the update from the Warriors indicated a much less severe injury. He finished with 22 points in 32 minutes.




Golden State almost gave it away with an very bad third quarter, when the Warriors managed just 15 points and committed six turnovers.

"I mean, [Harden] does whatever we need to be done", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. The Rockets need Paul to step up after the nine-time All-Star struggled in Game 5. He entered Wednesday averaging 35.4 points while shooting 51.8% from the field and 42.9% from 3-point range in the playoffs. "He kind of let it go a little bit". Curry does take some ball handling duties in a game, but the Warriors are best when Draymond brings the ball up the court and Steph looks for ways to get open.

"We're excited about the win but concerned for Kevin", Golden State coach Steve Kerr told reporters.

The Rockets won Games 3 and 4 with a similar trajectory as they controlled the action most of the way before holding off late Golden State rallies.
