Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant plans to return to the lineup Monday for Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, ESPN reported. 

Durant has missed the last nine games with a calf injury. Earlier in the day, coach Steve Kerr said the two-time Finals MVP would be a game-time decision.

The Warriors desperately need Durant as they could be eliminated with a loss. Toronto leads the finals 3-1. 

Before his injury, Durant was in the midst of an incredible postseason — averaging a career-high 34.2 points per game on a 51-41-90 split.
