Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant will miss Game 1 of the NBA Finals, according to The Athletic‘s Anthony Slater.
Slater tweeted that the two-time reigning Finals MVP will be sidelined for the opener of the series against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday. Durant is dealing with a strained right calf.
The Athletic‘s Blake Murphy added the 30-year-old may not even travel to Toronto for Games 1 and 2, with Game 3 likely being the earliest he could return.
Slater also said that DeMarcus Cousins is questionable for the first contest of the seven-game series.
