Kevin Durant will not travel to Portland to face the Trail Blazers in Games 3 and 4 of the NBA Western Conference Finals, according to pre-game comments by Bob Myers, President of Basketball Operations for the Golden State Warriors. The comments reportedly were made on the Bay Area affiliate of NBC Sports and tweeted out by Anthony Slater, who covers the Warriors for The Athletic.

Durant averaged 34 points per game in the 2019 NBA Playoffs until he injured his calf in Golden State’s second-round matchup with the Houston Rockets. He did not play in Game 1 between the Warriors and Trail Blazers.
