Though the Warriors are saying Kevin Durant (calf) is ‘a game-time decision’ for Game 5 Monday night, he’s expected to be a full go, according to multiple league sources.— Monte Poole (@MontePooleNBCS) June 10, 2019
The Warriors have missed Durant this series and now face elimination in Game 5 against the Toronto Raptors. The Raptors won both games at Oracle Arena and can end the Warriors' chance at a 3-peat with a win tonight.
The 2-time NBA Finals MVP has a chance to return to totally alter this series. While it's not clear just how big an impact Durant will have, his return could provide the needed boost the Warriors have lacked thus far.
Game 5 of the NBA Finals is tonight at 9p ET on ABC.
