Durant has not played since May 8 when he injured his calf in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets.

The Warriors, playing without Durant and Klay Thompson, lost Game 3 123-109 on Wednesday night to fall behind 2-1 in the series. Thompson, who suffered a hamstring strain in Game 2, will return to the lineup for Game 4.

Stephen Curry scored 47 points in the Game 3 loss. Kawhi Leonard led the Raptors with 30 points. He was one of six Toronto players, including all five starters, to score in double figures.
