All the chatter about the Warriors being better without Kevin Durant?

It’s over.

Golden State lost Game 1 of the NBA Finals to the Raptors yesterday. Suddenly, Steph & Depth no longer looks like the answer. Durant appears needed.

Though he’ll almost certainly miss Game 2 Sunday, he could return soon.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports:

Barring a setback, Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant is expected to return from a right calf strain at some point midway through the NBA Finals, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

There’s some optimism within members of the organization that a Game 3 arrival could be viable, but there’s a stronger possibility that Game 4 is the most logical option, sources said.

Steve Kerr: Kevin Durant could play after just one practice

Steve Kerr: Kevin Durant could play after just one practice Warriors star Kevin Durant still hasn’t been cleared for contact in practice, but his coach says that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a long way from returning to the court. Coach Steve Kerr opened the door to the possibility that Durant could play after just one practice, setting up the potential of a return on short notice before Game 3 or 4 of the NBA Finals. Steve Kerr says Kevin Durant still has yet to be cleared for full contact, but “feasible” he could play in a game after only one practice. Warriors next practice is Tuesday, the day before Game 3 and then Thursday, the day before Game 4.

Kevin Durant sat out Game 1 of the NBA Finals , the sixth consecutive playoff game he has missed with a calf injury. Though he traveled to Toronto, there haven’t been a lot of good vibes about him returning in Game 2. He’s still got six more days to recover before Game 3 in Oakland, but it’s all

The big question: How well will Durant play? He could be rusty. He could be hobbled.

But he’s so darn talented. At minimum, he’ll be an upgrade who allows Golden State to shorten its rotation. At best, he could take over this series.

No matter what, the dynamics change when Durant plays. He’ll force Toronto to move a good defender – Kawhi Leonard? – onto him. That could open things for other Warriors.

Golden State must do something differently to win this series. There will surely be other adjustments, but inserting Durant into the lineup could be the big one.
