Kevin Durant will be a ‘game-time decision’ for NBA Finals Game 5

After participating in a morning shoot around, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said whether or not Kevin Durant plays will be a game-time decision for Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday night against the Toronto Raptors.

“We’ll list him as a game-time decision,” Kerr told a group of reporters after practice. “He looked good and we’ll see where it all goes.”

Kerr said his biggest worry for Durant is his conditioning after being out for over a month with a calf strain.

“The skill is obviously undeniable. He’s a guy who can get his shot off any time he wants,” Kerr added. “He’s Kevin Durant. If we have him out there, he’ll be a threat. We know that.”
