Kevin Durant will reportedly remain out of the Golden State Warriors lineup for Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Chris Haynes.
Durant has been sidelined since Game 5 of the West semifinals against the Houston Rockets with a right calf injury and missed Game 1 against the Portland Trail Blazers. It was previously reported that the 30-year-old was doubtful to play in Game 2 as well.
The Warriors haven’t lost a step since their leading playoff scorer went down, winning both games without Durant.
He’s averaged an impressive 34.2 points in 11 playoff games and played an integral role in helping Golden State get past the Los Angeles Clippers and Rockets in the opening two rounds.
The Warriors currently lead Portland 1-0 in the West Final.
