Durant would apparently miss a potential Game 7 Sunday, too.

Kevin Durant landed awkwardly after a shot with 2:05 left in the third quarter. Calf strain, he's had them before.

"A lot of it is factored into this spot in Game 6 where obviously Houston's backs are against the wall". If Durant misses the rest of the series, the door is wide open.

"Our team played like (expletive) Giants tonight", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters after the Game 5 win. "It's hard to battle all the way back which we did and then go into the fourth quarter and we're tied...we just couldn't get it done".

Kerr said he would huddle with his coaching staff on Thursday and decide how he will shuffle his lineup.

Kevin Durant's leg injury could have a major impact not only on how the 2019 playoffs conclude but how the league takes shape this summer in a year where several superstars will become free agents.

Now that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are the parents of a baby boy everyone has so many questions about their little one. Buckingham Palace also said last month Prince Harry and Meghan wanted to keep the arrival of their first child "private".

"Tough one, but we are capable of being better".

"It's one of those things that until they actually lose, no one believes they're actually going to lose", Berg said. He limped toward the Rockets' bench, and after a few moments, he went straight to the Warriors' locker room, accompanied by trainers and Myers. The injury came late in the third quarter after Durant had put up 22 points in 32 minutes of play.

By comparison, Houston was favored by 3.5 at home in Game 3 and Golden State was favored by 1 in Game 4 on the road.

Kerr gave the following statement about Durant's availability, per ESPN.

"We started the game well, but then they got up on us 20 points".

After they had won, celebrated a little and then wearily walked back into the locker room, the Warriors saw Durant and heard the relatively good news - it wasn't an Achilles tear, but he was out indefinitely and nearly certainly out for the next few games.
