Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant was cleared to return to practice Sunday, but his status for Game 5 of the NBA Finals has not been determined.

"He's doing more today," head coach Steve Kerr told reporters. "We'll know more after that."

The Raptors have a 3-1 lead and can close out the championship series at home on Monday night.

Durant has not played since injuring his right calf on May 8 in the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets. He has missed the past nine games.

Durant averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game in the regular season. During the postseason, he is producing 34.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.
