NBA Finals 2019: Kevin Durant ruled as questionable for Game 5 but 'plans to play', per reports

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr announced at his media availability ahead of Game 5 that Kevin Durant (calf) would practice Sunday.

Hours ahead of Game 5's tip-off Monday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Durant plans to play in Game 5.

On Sunday, Kerr stated that along with practice, Durant would get some "extra work in" with some of the Warriors' younger guys and the team will "gauge it from there."

Durant went through practice, but not for long.

The final update from Monday stated that Durant is listed as 'questionable' for Game 5.

Durant has been out since May 10th with a calf injury - Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals.
