After missing the past two games against the Portland Trail Blazers with a calf injury, Kevin Durant will be on the court Monday night for his Golden State Warriors.
The Warriors just announced that Kevin Durant will play tonight in Game 4 in Portland.

This is most definitely more bad news for a Blazers team that must take Game 4 in order to avoid getting swept against the two-time defending Western Conference champs.
Durant injured his calf in Golden State’s series-opening Game 1 win on Easter Sunday. It’s a game that saw the former MVP go for 32 points and 11 rebounds while shooting 12-of-20 from the field.
Should Durant play like that for his Warriors on Monday, they will pretty much be a lock to earn another trip to the conference semifinals.
