Kevin Durant Listed As Questionable For Game 5

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".

Palestinians hit out at US envoy’s comments
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged ahead of April elections to begin annexing West Bank settlements. To the contrary, "certainly Israel's entitled to retain some portion of it", he said, referring to the West Bank.

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

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 on May 08, 2019 in Oakland, California.

In Game 3 of this series, Klay Thompson, nursing a hamstring injury, was dressed and available for the Warriors but never ended up seeing the floor.
