Kerr: Kevin Durant calf injury is more serious than we thought
The injury news surrounding Kevin Durant does not sound too promising.
Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after the team’s 114-111 win in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday night that Durant’s calf injury is more serious than they initially thought.
Steve Kerr didn’t give a great prognosis on Kevin Durant postgame. Said he’s been working really hard to get back but:“It’s a little more serious than we thought in the beginning.”

The Warriors provided a medical update on Durant and DeMarcus Cousins before the game. They said both players would be evaluated again in a week, meaning they both would be out through Game 5 of the series. And while Durant is progressing, he still hasn’t been cleared for on-court work, unlike Cousins, who already has been. This line of thought is not too surprising given what Kerr said on Monday.
If anything, Cousins sounds like he is closer to a return than Durant.
The Warriors have won every game since Durant got hurt, including Game 5 against Houston, the game he exited due to his injury.
