Warriors' Durant (calf) out for Game 6, Kerr says

Kevin Durant looks on. More

The Warriors later announced Durant suffered a right calf strain.

Kevin Durant left the contest with what turned out to be a calf injury, giving an already-depleted Warriors a major hole they needed to fill.

Apparent discomfort caused Durant to hop down the floor before grabbing at his lower right leg.

Durant underwent an MRI on Thursday morning that ruled out a possible torn Achilles tendon. This time, Kevin Durant went down, and Klay Thompson and company found a way when the Warriors desperately needed it. As he began his run back to the other end of the court, Durant pulled up lame, and was seemingly unable to move his right foot as he hobbled off the court.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told The Athletic after Wednesday's 104-99 win over the Rockets in Game 5, "He's not going to play Game 6". Durant's status for the rest of the postseason - if Golden State beats the Rockets and heads to the conference finals - is up in the air.

Maybe we shouldn't have been surprised by Harden's struggles, considering in his three games against the Warriors in the regular season, he also struggled in the first quarter averaging just seven points per game on miserable 26.3 percent field goal shooting and just 25 percent three-point shooting.

The Warriors have become even more reliant on him against the Rockets as sharpshooter Stephen Curry has gone cold and is connecting on just 26 per cent of his three-pointer attempts. Warriors will look to Curry and Play to win them the games and with high usage for such good shooters, will come points. Before you lock in your Warriors vs. Rockets picks, listen to what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

KEEP AN EYE ON: Rebounds.

Both teams had been running up their stars' minutes since Game 1, and the series seemed like it would be decided by who broke first. Houston has lost three close games in Oakland, but won Games 3 and 4 on its home floor.

PRESSURE IS ON: Paul.

Kevin Durant was averaging 35.4 points in the playoffs for Golden State. He said Houston can't worry about its missed opportunity on Wednesday night and must look forward. "We want their best shot". Let this one go ... it's over and done with.

"Hopefully we get Kevin back at some point", Kerr added.
