Warriors big underdogs on news of Durant injury

Kevin Durant Leaves Game With Calf Strain

The injury occurred with 2:11 left in the third quarter of Game 5 on Wednesday night as Durant went up for a jumper over Rockets swingman Iman Shumpert. "I was assured it's a calf strain, not the Achilles'". He logged 50 minutes during a Game 3 overtime loss to Houston, the most minutes he had played in a playoff game since 2014. On Wednesday night, the Warriors got a dose of what losing a star player means before they managed to hold off the Rockets and secure a 104-99 win.

The Warriors used a 17-0 burst late in the first half to go up 57-37, only to see the entire advantage disappear before the end of the third period, when Harden's floater gave Houston a 71-70 lead. On the flip side, despite being down 3-2, Houston believes it can win Friday and return to the Bay Area to put the final nail in the Warriors' coffin.

"They'll bounce back and we'll be ready on Friday".

"It's not the Achilles", Kerr said.

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

Boeing maintained that the software problem " did not adversely impact airplane safety or operation ". Disagree alerts would notify pilots whether a sensor is malfunctioning or not.

Stephen Curry, himself with a finger injury, and the struggling Klay Thompson will now have to carry the load against the Rockets if the Warriors want to reach the Western Conference finals. He limped toward the Rockets' bench, and after a few moments, he went straight to the Warriors' locker room, accompanied by trainers and Myers.

"He's been phenomenal", Kerr said.

"If Kevin is out, then what you saw in the fourth quarter is what you're gonna have to see going forward", Kerr said.

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.
