"If there's a risk, we'd rather give him the next couple days to continue to heal and hopefully have him out there for Game 4," Kerr said. "It's literally day to day.

"Very confused around that reaction. It's not my experience with people of this city. I commend Danny Green and Kyle Lowry for signaling to the crowd. I hope that ugliness doesn't show itself again," said Curry, according to The Washington Post's Ben Golliver.

Durant will undergo an MRI on Tuesday. This was his first taste of action since Game 5 against the Houston Rockets in the second round.
