Durant practices, set to play Saturday
Head coach Steve Kerr reckons that the trickiest part of Durant's return will be reshuffling his substitution patterns. The Warriors player will not have the reigning two-time MVP to help him get open shots.
"If I had to wait until the playoffs, I would have waited", he said.
The team said that if Durant exits Friday's practice without issue, he will play in Saturday's game at Oracle Arena. That's my favorite thing to do, to play basketball.
As for having no minutes restriction, that is a good sign that the medical staff feels Durant is 100 percent. So to be away, it was different. Durant can take the last three games of the season, and the first round of the playoffs, to slide back into a grove.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are on a 13-game winning streak as they have secured the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference Finals. He joined the Warriors via free agency this past offseason.
No one knows how long it will take for Durant to regain his mid-season form, but he was adamant that he's not going to hold anything back on Saturday.
