Despite still being slightly injured it seems Kevin Durant will play tonight in the possible elimination game against the Toronto Raptors. According to Adrian Wojnarowski sources, Durant will give it a go and hopefully help the Warriors secure a win in Toronto.

If Durant comes back tonight there is no guarantee he will actually help the Warriors to the extent needed for them to secure a much-needed win. He hasn’t played basketball after his injury back in the series against the Rockets and it’s been almost a month he is injured.
There were reports of him trying to practice at full capacity, but initially Steve Kerr he didn’t see the improvement they were expecting in getting Durant back, however, that obviously changed if he decides to play Durant tonight.
His teammates said Durant’s presence on the floor is definitely missing so it will be really interesting to see if he can provide solid minutes in the most important game this season for both teams.
