OAKLAND CALIFORNIA- MAY 08 Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors warms up before Game Five of the Western Conference Semifinals of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at ORACLE Arena

The Golden State Warriors could be on the verge of receiving some much-needed backup as they face elimination Monday night trailing 3-1 in the NBA Finals. The Warriors trail the Raptors 3-1 in the title series, meaning their quest for a third consecutive National Basketball Association championship could end Monday.

The Warriors are listing Durant, who has been sidelined for more than a month with a strained calf, as a "game-time decision" for Game 5 although ESPN reported that the 30-year-old intends to play.

This past Sunday, Durant was practicing with the team, with Steve Kerr saying "He looked good, we'll see where it goes". The 10-time All-Star was the last Warrior to emerge from the locker room for practice and one of the first to return, eventually reappearing with two ice packs wrapped around his right calf and Achilles tendon.

Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game with the Warriors this season. "The skill, obviously, is undeniable and he's a guy who can get a shot off anytime he wants".

She says she spoke to hospital staff to confirm, and says some of Bill's family members are by his hospital bedside right now. The Houston-based Geto Boys was a trio consisting of Bushwick Bill , Scarface and Willie D that launched in the late 1980s.

Kevin Durant's condition is being scrutinized on a minute-by-minute basis and understandably so.
