If Kevin Durant plays in the NBA Finals on an injured leg and hurts himself far more significantly, there is a chance that he could miss out on long-term contract offers from teams other than the Golden State Warriors keeping the Pacific Division very hard for the Phoenix Suns to maneuver.
One potential saviour could be coming in the form of Kevin Durant, who happens to likely be the most talented basketball player on the planet and, fittingly, named the MVP of the last two Finals.
"We're a team that can also go on a run and start feeling good about ourselves and some of our threes start dropping", Bogut told ESPN. Three years ago the Warriors sprinted to a 3-1 lead against Cleveland before LeBron James and the Cavs overtook them in seven games.
In Game 3 of this series, Klay Thompson, nursing a hamstring injury, was dressed and available for the Warriors but never ended up seeing the floor. Head coach Steve Kerr was optimistic that Durant could play Monday night if he went through Sunday's practice without any issues. That they haven't dismissed the idea of Durant suiting up in the Monday night tilt in Toronto is a step in the right direction.
The Warriors enter Game 5 unsure if Kevin Durant will return, with the star small forward offically listed as "questionable" following practice in Toronto today.

But they know closing out the two-time defending champions, a team that's in the finals for a fifth straight June, will be no easy feat. But whether it's tomorrow or Game 6, we just have to do everything in our willpower to help him get back.
He went to the hospital to make sure there were no broken bones in his face after the Raptors landed in Toronto on Saturday before going to the dentist to get his tooth fixed. "I was more upset about the team than the eye". He also had a playoff career-high 21 points in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final - quite something for an undrafted Wichita State Shockers product that was in a battle just to make the Raptors at training camp in 2016. The Raptors were posted as -700 favorites to win the series after their victory in Game 4.
