Will he or won’t he play? The Golden State Warriors have listed forward Kevin Durant as questionable for Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors on Monday.
The news comes after the Warriors star was cleared to practice with his teammates for the first time since injuring his right calf on May 8 against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals.
Your officials for Game 5 are James Capers, Jason Phillips, and Ed Malloy.

Coach Steve Kerr was optimistic that Durant could play Monday if he went through Sunday’s practice without any issues.
“He’s going to practice with us today,” Kerr said prior to the practice. “And he’ll get some extra work in with some of our younger players. We’ll gauge it from there.”
The Warriors likely will have a shootaround Monday morning, as they regularly do, which would give Durant another chance to test his calf injury.
Sportsbooks accounted for the news that Durant was practicing on Sunday, as the point spread on Game 5 dropped.
All signs point to KD playing.
