Warriors star Durant to miss game three


The Golden State Warriors have decided to rest Kevin Durant for Saturday's game three against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Durant missed game two with a left calf strain, and it appears the team would like to give him a little longer to recover before throwing him back onto the court.

Patrick McCaw started in place of Durant for game two, and will likely replace him in the lineup again Saturday.

Matt Barnes and Shaun Livingston are also out for the Warriors.

Head coach Steve Kerr will also be out due to an illness, with assistant Mike Brown to lead the Warriors.

Golden State hold a 2-0 series lead.
