The two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP has now missed the last six games after straining his calf during the third quarter of Game 5 of the Warriors’ second-round NBA playoff series against the Houston Rockets.
Durant will not play in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but he did offer a brief update on his rehab as he left Scotiabank Arena on Friday.
Kevin Durant juuuuuust left the arena after getting about an hour of treatment following Warriors practice. “Getting there,” he said. No visible limp.

No noticeable limp.
Durant reportedly could return midway through the series, although the injury is one that normally would require more time to heal.
