Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant will have his injured right calf reevaluated before Game 2 of the Western Conference finals but is “not close” to returning to action, a league source told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

Durant hasn’t resumed basketball related activities yet, which would be the first step in returning to play.

Durant missed Tuesday’s Game 1 win over the Portland Trail Blazers with the injury, and will miss Thursday night’s Game 2 as well. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Monday that a “more detailed update” on Durant would come Thursday.

“Everyone needs to slow down a little bit on the Kevin stuff,” Kerr said after Monday’s practice. “He hasn’t even stepped on the floor yet. … He still has pain. So there’s some time ahead of him on the rehab process.”

Durant injured his calf in the third quarter of last week’s Game 5 conference semifinal win over the Houston Rockets after going up for a jumper over Rockets swingman Iman Shumpert and landing awkwardly.
