Meanwhile, the Warriors are on a 13-game winning streak as they have secured the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference Finals.
Durant says, "I'm just going to go out there and be me".
Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant speaks during NBA basketball practice in Oakland, Calif.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he will take Durant out if he starts tiring. "Obviously, when you get banged up in that area, it's going to take you some time for you mentally to feel like everything's all right, so today was one of those days where I went out there and played, practiced with the guys and I felt normal". "So I don't really have a number on the minutes played that I'm looking at". Durant can take the last three games of the season, and the first round of the playoffs, to slide back into a grove. He was hurt in Wednesday's game against the Phoenix Suns and didn't practice on Friday. He said playing basketball is his favorite thing so it hard to be away from the game.
"I knew it would get there at some point". To be away was different and tough but I looked at the big picture.

The country is ranked eighth in the Middle East, up from 12th, the report published on the official WEF website on Thursday said.
Warriors star guard Stephen Curry is listed doubtful for Saturday's game with a left knee contusion, but Durant is not concerned about accumulating reps with the two-time MVP before postseason play. "So, that day is here and I'm thankful".
"If I had to wait until the playoffs, I would have waited", he said. In doing so, they became the first team in National Basketball Association history to win at least 65 games in three-straight campaigns.
In his first season with the Warriors, Durant averaged 25.3 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists before the injury.
While Durant returns, the Warriors could be without another star on Saturday.
