Durant officially listed as questionable for Game 5

NBA: Warriors' Durant returns to practice

"He's Kevin Durant. So, if we have him out there, he'll be a threat, we know that".

For the first time in their five-straight NBA Finals appearances, the Golden State Warriors find themselves down two games, with the Toronto Raptors on the brink of sealing their first NBA championship.

The Toronto Raptors' strong performance thus far in this year's NBA Finals has Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau close to winning an impromptu bet with U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California.

"We still got plenty to play for", Steve Kerr said ahead of Game 5.

Durant was not made available to comment.

Durant practiced with the Warriors on Sunday for the first time since sustaining the calf injury, and he also participated in shootaround on Monday morning. Durant has not played since straining a calf muscle in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston.

The PIA said that the passengers were provided transportation and hotel accommodation and later on adjusted on other flight. The flight carrying almost 400 passengers eventually left Manchester at 5am on Saturday.

Previously this series, Kerr and the Warriors have ruled Durant out the day before each game.

"It's just having another powerful weapon out there who can do some very dynamic things on the floor, " Warriors guard Stephen Curry said.

Kerr was asked if he had any reservations about Durant's ability if he is ultimately cleared to play. Durant did not say anything as he walked past reporters to get to the Warriors' locker room.

Toronto allowed Kobe Bryant to score 81 points on January 22, 2006.

If the weather cooperates, the city is still hoping to show Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday night on Carden Street.
