Report: Kevin Durant likely to be ‘full go’ for Game 5
A new report indicates that Kevin Durant will suit up and give it a go as the Golden State Warriors face an elimination game.
Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area reported Monday that multiple sources expect Durant to be a “full go” for the Warriors’ do-or-die Game 5 on Monday night.
Though the Warriors are saying Kevin Durant (calf) is ‘a game-time decision’ for Game 5 Monday night, he’s expected to be a full go, according to multiple league sources.

Durant has been listed as a game-time decision by coach Steve Kerr, but all signs point to him suiting up. He went through both practice and shootaround, and Kerr said he “looked good” doing so. The reality is that Golden State simply can’t afford to wait any longer. They’re down 3-1 in the NBA Finals, and if Durant even has a chance to contribute at all, he will play. It sounds like that is precisely what will happen.
