The Golden State Warriors will be without Kevin Durant until at least Game 5 after GM Bob Myers announced he wouldn't travel with the team to Portland for Games 3 & 4.

Durant suffered the injury in Game 5 of the Warriors' second-round series against the Houston Rockets and has not played since.

Despite his absence, the Warriors haven't missed a beat, taking a 1-0 series lead over the Porltand Trail Blazers with a comfortable 116-94 win in Game 1, with Steph Curry stepping up with 36 points and nine made three-pointers, following his 33-point effort in Game 6 against Houston.

Durant was at the Warriors' practice facility on Thursday undergoing some rehab, but has yet to do any on-court work and is still walking with a slight limp.
