Kevin Durant is set to start Game 5 tonight for the Golden State Warriors. Not only is he good to go, Steve Kerr said he doesn’t have any minutes restrictions.
Before the game, Durant looked pretty good leading his usual pregame huddle dance routine. He showed no ill effects from the calf strain that has kept him out for the bulk of the NBA Playoffs.
Here’s the video of Durant breaking it down in the tunnel before Game 5.

Not too bad. We’ll see how he looks when the action starts though.
There is a big difference between some dancing in the safety of your own huddle and going to battle against some of the NBA’s best for 48 minutes.
Expect the Raptors to test Durant’s leg on both ends of the floor from the opening tip. We’ll know right away how healthy he is or isn’t.
Game 5 is being televised now on ABC. The Raptors are one win away from a world championship.
