- Kevin Durant took part in the Golden State Warriors' practice on Friday but it remained unclear if he'd be back from a calf injury for Saturday's NBA playoff game against the Trail Blazers in Portland. The Warriors lead 2-0 in the best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series so can afford to be cautious with Durant. He suffered a left calf strain while scoring 32 points in the Warriors' game-one win. "If it was game seven of the Finals, (Durant) could play," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "We're not talking about something that could damage his career. What we're talking about is something that if it potentially gets worse and knocks him out for a few weeks, it's not worth it."
