Head coach Steve Kerr announced at Golden State Warriors media availability that Kevin Durant will not be ready to play in Game 4.

Kerr stated that the training staff "doesn't feel comfortable" putting Durant in a game yet. "There was no setback. I was hoping today would be the day he'd get back on the floor. It's not going to be today. It's going to be tomorrow or next couple days."

On the bright side for Warriors fans, it looks like Klay Thompson will be back for Game 4.

However, the Warriors have lost five of their last six NBA Finals games when Kevin Durant doesn't play.

Durant has yet to suit up since his injury in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Houston Rockets.

Kerr has repeatedly stated that the All-Star forward will have to go through one full practice before returning to action. With only one day in between Games 3 and 4, the shortest stint of time between games this Finals, Durant was against the odds to play in Game 4.

There will be two days of rest between Games 4 and 5 - a much more realistic time frame for Durant to make his comeback.
