I would assume so. turns out it may just be a calf strain but surely that sidelines him a couple weeks?
Cousins also a chance to return at some point, maybe. Not for Houston game 6/7 though.

Strained calf,MRI tomorrow

Gutsed out a massive win when we could have rolled over.

Key guys stood up.

Fingers crossed on KD and that we can finish this thing off.

Well we did what we had to do.

We were no chance of winning Game 6 and 7 if KD didn't play.

At least we have two shots at it now.

Looney was fantastic after being ordinary in the series to date.

On further reflection, I'm super-impressed with what happened after the Durant injury.

Houston were running all over the top of us. They'd cut the lead from 20 to 3. Steph was having a shocker and Draymond was in foul trouble.

To win from there was a gutsy effort.

The Warriors have won 26 of the last 27 games without Durant. Obviously it’s a different proposition in the playoffs but that record is pretty damn good.

I'm sure you were thinking it, but those games are where Curry plays and Durant is out, not just games Durant is out.

4-0 against the Rockets in that span as well.

Yes that’s right, sorry. Obviously when they were both out the record wasn’t quite so good.

I'm only stating the obvious, but Steph needs to stay out of foul trouble tonight.

Just a CLUTCH CLUTCH win.

Everyone amazing in the 1st half except Steph who struggled with fouls/shot.

Klay unbelievable, Iggy Dray Looney.

But Steph in the 2nd half was a F*****G GIANT!!!!

Everything you could hope for, the reason I went to SF was to see him play.

Unbelievable, what a win.

Amazing team effort to have it tied at the half with Steph scoreless.

I don't know how. I'm not going to ask!

And then Steph Stephed in the second half.

Everyone contributed.

So happy right now.

I hope Kerr now decides to plays the Green and Curry PnR when Durant is on the bench for the rest of the playoffs (obviously after Durant returns).

What is the deal with Curry getting doughnuts in first halves then dropping 20 or 30?

2 very 15/16 comeback Warrior wins in the last two.

Should mean Durant can sit until the Finals.

We'll probably be down 3 starters come Game 4 (can't see them risking Iggy), so it will be tough to close them out on the road.

Draymond has been sensational these playoffs.

Can't say enough about him. I thought he was done as an elite player.
His leadership has been brilliant too. When they put the mic on him in the last game you can see just how good he is. The way he picked Jordan Bell up was inspiring.

Looney has been so good I'm not sure I want to see Cousins come back.

Only positive of a Cousins comeback would be if Durant is out for the whole playoffs. At least it is a scoring option.
