KEVIN Durant skipped practice on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) and is listed as questionable for the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the first-round series in the 2017 NBA Playoffs against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday due to a strained left calf.
The Warriors forward finished with 32 points and 10 rebounds while playing through cramps late in their Game 1 victory, 121-109, last Sunday. Durant sat out Tuesday’s practice as precautionary measure.
“If he didn’t practice, there’s concern,” said Golden State coach Steve Kerr.
Durant is coming off from a strained MCL and a bone bruise in his left leg that forced him to miss 19 games late in the regular season before coming back in the Warriors final three outings before the playoffs.
The Warriors have listed Shaun Livingston (finger) and Matt Barnes (ankle sprain) as questionable for Game 2 against the Blazers, who continue to miss the services of new recruit Jusuf Nurkic (leg fracture).
