Warriors' Durant remains out: 'Near impossible for him to play' Game 2
Toronto Raptors took a 1-0 series lead with 118-109 victory
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr does not expect injured star forward Kevin Durant to play in Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
"Kevin's not going to play Sunday," Kerr said on Friday. "I guess we've been sort of holding out hope, but he's not practising today, he's not [going to] practise tomorrow. He's still progressing ... It's near impossible for him to play on Sunday."
Durant, the NBA Finals MVP the past two seasons, has missed the past seven games with a calf injury.
The Raptors lead the best-of-seven series 1-0 after a 118-109 win in the opener on Thursday.
After Game 2 in Toronto, the series shifts to Oakland, Calif., for Games 3 and 4 next week.
