Durant's status for the rest of the series and the playoffs is unknown, but he's expected to miss Game 6 on Friday in Houston, according to multiple reports.
Ultimately, we don't know when he'll be back. "It's a hard one to say, it really is".
When Durant went down, the Rockets had a golden opportunity to put them away at Oracle Arena. He limped toward the Rockets' bench, and after a few moments, he went straight to the Warriors' locker room, accompanied by trainers and Myers. "When I walked into the coach's office after the game, the replay of the play was going on".
Stephen Curry, himself with a finger injury, and the struggling Klay Thompson will now have to carry the load against the Rockets if the Warriors want to reach the Western Conference finals. "Whether it's other guys were getting shots, open looks, trying to make the right plays at certain points in the game, I'm not sure". So, we desperately need him if we wanna win a championship, but we can win one game without him.
Durant is an National Basketball Association finals Most Valuable Player the past two seasons after leading the Warriors to back-to-back crowns. Just subtle changes that happen when you don't have those playcalls that gets K in the right spot to take advantage of his talent. Additionally, the Warriors are now +140 to win the title, compared to -110 prior to their Game 5 victory.
Kerr talked with the injured Durant, who has been on an incredible roll in the post-season, after the Game 5.
However, after he left Wednesday night's game, star point guard Steph Curry looked like his old self again. "Keep the feeling, take care of business at home, then we will come back here and try to get it". We'll find out more about that later.
