The Golden State Warriors have been pushed to the brink of elimination by the Toronto Raptors in the 2019 NBA Finals. A big reason that they're facing a 3-1 deficit in the series is the various injuries that they've dealt with. Most notable among them is the calf injury that has kept Kevin Durant on the sideline since Game 5 of their second-round series against the Houston Rockets.

However, after over a month on the shelf, Durant plans to return to action for Game 5 against the Raptors on Monday night, according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Durant's not expected to have a minutes restriction, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
