Kevin Durant Listed As Questionable For Game 5

A question from a kid reporter during the Toronto Raptors media availability on Sunday had Kyle Lowry smiling

The Warriors find themselves in an unfamiliar position on Monday, facing elimination to the Toronto Raptors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

The Warriors are listing Durant - who practised Monday morning after being sidelined for more than a month with a strained calf - as a "game-time decision" for Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors trail the Toronto Raptors 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, meaning their quest for a third consecutive National Basketball Association championship could end on Monday.

Durant spent about 25 minutes on the court before leaving toward the end of the Warriors' shootaround session for continued treatment. But Durant practiced with the team for the first time in a while over the weekend, and now ESPN's Jay Williams, who had dinner with KD last night, is saying he's he "shocked" if Durant wasn't in the lineup tonight for Golden State.
