Golden State Warriors star forward Kevin Durant will not play in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but Andre Iguodala is expected to be available to play against the Toronto Raptors, coach Steve Kerr said Friday. Durant will continue rehabbing a right calf injury that has kept him out of the lineup since May 8. “Kevin’s not going to play Sunday,” Kerr said Friday. “I guess we’ve been sort of holding out hope, but I might as well just say it now. He’s not practicing today. We’ll have a practice tomorrow, but he’s still progressing. It’s near impossible for him to play on Sunday.”

Whenever Durant does return, Kerr does not believe it will be in a limited role. “I don’t see that,” Kerr said. “When he’s ready to play, we’re going to play him. Maybe it will be a minutes issue based on his conditioning for not having played in a month or whatever it is, but we’ll just have to wait and see. Once he’s ready to play, he’ll play. And then [Warriors director of sports medicine and performance] Rick [Celebrini] and I will discuss what a plan would be in terms of how many minutes and all that stuff.”

Entering his fifth season, Richardson was involved in a five-game playoff series loss two years ago against the Sixers. There have been many other, heated games with the two teams. His biggest perception of Philadelphia as an opposing player? “The fans, man,” Josh Richardson said during Saturday’s annual Sixers Summer Shore Tour at the PigDog Beach Bar BQ in Wildwood. “The first thing you think about is how hard the fans are to opposing players. It is tough playing against that and I am excited to play on the same side of those fans.”
In looking at his new team, Richardson noted something he thought he would never see, that he will be the smallest player in the starting lineup. The rest of the projected lineup is 6-10 point guard Ben Simmons, 6-9 small forward Tobias Harris, 6-10 power forward Al Horford and 7-2 center Joel Embiid. “I have never been that ever in my life,” Richardson said about being the smallest. “This will be interesting, looking up to my teammates, talking in huddles.”
Not surprisingly, his summer has been spent working overtime on all aspects of his game. “I’ve been grinding,” he said. Smith says he has benefited from extra summer work in the weight room. The Sixers list him at 199 pounds. He said he was about 205 the last time he was weighed before the summer and now says he is 212 pounds. He hopes to become a solid rotation player. “That is the goal,” he said. “Get in the rotation and play hard and do what I do and have fun.”
