On Thursday afternoon Warriors head coach Steve Kerr announced that Kevin Durant will not play in Game 4 as the team had hoped.

Kerr also announced that KD did not participate in a scrimmage as planned, because doctors have determined he wasn’t ready to make the next step in his recovery. 

Meanwhile, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara started Game 5.  Just two days after breaking his jaw in Game 4 when he took a puck to the face. 

The fact that KD has missed weeks with a strained calf, while Chara didn’t miss a single game with his broken jaw wasn’t lost on hockey fans on Twitter, and they roasted him for it.


At this point there’s no way Durant just has a strained calf is there?  You have to believe it’s a more significant injury and he’ll likely not play at all in The Finals.
