Kevin Durant has been listed by the Golden State Warriors as uncertain to play in Game 2 of the Warriors' playoff match against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. Durant is listed as questionable due to a strained left calf by the Warriors' public relations staff on Twitter. Durant did not participate in the team's practice on Tuesday, according to Marcus Thompson of Mercury News.

KD recently returned for the Golden State Warriors, but the return could be short-lived. Durant is questionable for Game 2 against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday due to a calf strain. Durant suffered the sprain presumably in Game 1 of the series in which he played 36 minutes and contributed 32 points and ten rebounds, along with the fact that Durant was not participate in Monday's practice.

This isn't the first injury Durant has experienced

Kevin Durant's sprain is in the same leg that he injured earlier this season. Accompanying Durant, Matt Barnes (ankle/foot sprain) and Shaun Livingston (finger) also remain questionable, which could leave the Golden State Warriors thin in the depth department on the wing. KGO-TV's Larry Bell reports that Durant experienced the strain in the Warriors' Game 1 121-109 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday. Per Anthony Slater of Mercury News, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr discussed Durant's injury situation with journalists.

Whatever happens to Kevin Durant's leg should be worrying for the Golden State Warriors. The 2014 MVP was absent for 19 games in the regular seasons after suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain and a tibial bone bruise in February 28's game against the Washington Wizards.

Durant returned for the Warriors' final three games of the regular season, averaging 20.3 points per game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Utah Jazz, and New Orleans Pelicans.

The Warriors should take their time with KD

While the Golden State Warriors will want the return of Kevin Durant sooner rather than later, there are plenty of reasons why Durant should rest for as long as required.

Despite Portland putting up a great fight in Game 1, there is no reason why the Warriors should not be able to overcome the Trail Blazers even without the presence of Durant.

But as the Golden State Warriors get closer to the NBA Finals, the Warriors will need the presence of Kevin Durant as close to 100 percent as possible, so there is little reason for Durant to play in game two if he is not ready to play.
