Kevin Durant won't play for Warriors in Game 2 of playoffs

Share

This will give Durant at least five days off - Game 1 was Sunday, Game 3 won't be until Saturday in Portland - should Durant be ready to return by then. The star forward returned to action on Apr. 8 and regained his shooting rhythm during the regular season finale against the Los Angeles Lakers on Apr. 12. He played in the final three games of the regular season and found a rhythm in the last game by scoring 29 points.

A left calf strain forced Durant to miss Tuesday's practice, and it could force him to sit in the team's upcoming game.

The Wizards, Rockets and Warriors will all aim to take 2-0 leads in their respective series tonight, when those first-round matchups resume. "And me being a young player in this league - they've been around a lot longer - it hits me a little more than it would hit them if they miss a couple shots". "It's twinged", coach Steve Kerr said before the game. In addition to Durant, Warriors guard Shaun Livingston (finger) and backup forward Matt Barnes (ankle sprain) are also listed as questionable for tomorrow's game. Though he stayed in the game to polish off a 32-point, 11-rebound performance, the four-time National Basketball Association scoring champion was in enough pain to miss Tuesday's practice and Wednesday morning's shoot-around.

According to The Sacramento Bee, the Blazers, on the other hand, will continue to be without center Jusuf Nurkic, who is now recovering from a right leg fracture. "That's totally the expectation but you've got to be careful with this stuff, too".

"I wouldn't call it demoralizing", Portland coach Terry Stotts said.

"No, they can go for a combined 75 points, they're awesome players", Thompson said of McCollum and Lillard.

North Korea failed missile launch increases US-NK tension
Asked by a reporter what message he had for North Korea's young leader Kim Jong-Un on Monday, Trump replied " Gotta behave ". The U.S.is trying to ratchet up pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

PRESSURE IS ON: Dwight Howard played 29 minutes and was a mere 2 for 6 from the floor in Game 1. "I'm not 100 percent", Nurkic said. "He wants to play, for sure".

In the grand scheme of things, Kerr should be willing to jeopardize a game early in the playoffs to ensure Durant's health.

It doesn't seem entirely likely that McCollum and Lillard will be this good again in Game 2; and it seems extremely probable that Curry and Thompson will be livelier and more productive in the next one and the one after that.
