Report: Kevin Durant will not play in Game 2
Unsurprisingly, Kevin Durant will not feature for the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.
According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Durant will be out for Game 2 as his calf strain continues to linger.
Golden State star Kevin Durant (calf strain) will not play in Game 2 of the WCF against Portland, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

Durant is due to be evaluated again in the coming days, but the update Steve Kerr provided on Monday wasn’t a terribly encouraging one. Perhaps things have changed since then, but it does not appear that Durant is on the verge of returning to the Golden State lineup.
The good news for the Warriors? They dispatched the Portland Trail Blazers with relative ease in Game 1, even without Durant in the lineup.
