According to Warriors insider Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle, Durant made it through the practice but walked out with an ice bag on his injured right calf.

The Golden State Warriors have listed forward Kevin Durant as questionable for Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors Monday night. The writer chose the word "angst" to elucidate the brittle confidence around the time going into a decisive Game 5.

"I'm a gambler. I gambled and sometimes it comes back to bite you in the butt", VanVleet said at a podium set up along one of the baselines at Scotiabank Arena following Sunday's practice.

The Warriors were hopeful that Durant would be able to make his return to action in Game 4, but he still had not been cleared for practice up to that point. Golden State trailed Oklahoma City with Durant in their lineup, 3-1 in the 2016 playoff and rallied to win.

Turner convincingly conveys Jean's conflict as she teeters between good and evil. Dark Phoenix is better than The Last Stand; it's not as overstuffed or coarse.

Game 5's spread opened at Raptors -2.5 at home, and it had been fluctuating between -3 and -3.5 prior to the Durant news. Without him, I wouldn't bet a penny on the Warriors to win this series. Stephen Curry began to show signs of exhaustion during Game 4 as the Warriors scored just 92 points, their fewest of the postseason, and struggled to contain Leonard, who notched 36 points.

Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game with the Warriors this season. "It's just having another powerful weapon out there that can do some very dynamic things on the floor". Even if he isn't 100%, Durant's mere presence should make the Warriors more potent on the offensive end. "He's been in plenty of Finals and has played well". "I think it's pretty easy to realize we obviously miss him out there". I was at 80 percent the other night.

While Toronto has been the healthier, steadier and more impressive team throughout this series, Thompson allowed himself to dream about the possibility of a Durant-led comeback.
