Kevin Durant Out in NBA Finals Game 1, DeMarcus Cousins’ Inclusion Questionable
The Golden State Warriors player Kevin Durant is now officially out in the Game 1 of NBA Finals, according to GSW coach Steve Kerr.
Steve Kerr confirmed that Durant won’t play the opening game of NBA Finals against Toronto Raptors on Thursday (May 30, 2019).
The GSW coach said that Durant has not resumed on-court work as his rehabilitation and recovery from a strained right calf continues.
However, it was still unclear if Durant would travel with the Warriors to Toronto .
“KD’s not playing Game 1, I think we already announced that. And we’ll see where it goes from here. This is where the fact that there’s a lot of days in between games during the Finals helps us, so we’ll see,” Kerr said.
Kevin Durant suffered a calf injury late in Game 5 against the Houston Rockets but GSW was still able to win five (5) consecutive games in the Western Conference Finals.
DeMarcus Cousins is listed questionable for Game 1 of the NBA finals since he has not played after suffering a torn left quad during the first round against the Los Angeles Clippers on April 15.
Cousins has progressed steadily and is now expected to return at some point of the NBA finals.
