One of the league's best scoring threats, Durant has been out with a right calf injury since Game 5 of the Western Conference second round and has watched from the sidelines as Golden State has fallen behind the Toronto Raptors 3-1. The team will assess how Durant feels afterward and it's unclear if a final determination will be made on his availability for Game 5 before Monday.
With the Warriors down 3-1 in the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, it's become abundantly clear that Golden State will be in trouble if Kevin Durant can't play in the series. The Warriors are hopeful that he'll be able to play Monday if he's able to come through Sunday all right without any setbacks.
"He's going to practice with us today", Kerr said prior to the practice.
Kevin Durant was playing basketball on Sunday.
Thompson said he does not think it will be hard to integrate Durant back into the offense, even after he's missed so much time.
Durant will ramp up his activity and give his calf another go as he tries to help salvage the Warriors' remaining hopes for a three-peat.More news: Modi woos Sri Lanka, Maldives as India fends off Chinese influence

"I hate wearing mouthpieces", VanVleet said.
"We all accept the challenge and can hopefully go out there and take care of business".
Durant's injury is one of several the Warriors continue to deal with.
"It's just having another powerful weapon out there that can do some very dynamic things on the floor", Curry said. No matter what percentage he's at, I'm sure he'll be impactful and effective out there.
Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game with the Warriors this season.
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.
