When will Kevin Durant return from his strained calf?

The Warriors host the Trail Blazers tomorrow and Thursday in the Western Conference finals.

Ramona Shelburne of ESPN:

How quickly Durant returns might depend how Golden State fares without him. If Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are shooting well and the Warriors are winning, that makes it far easier to bring along Durant slowly.

But it also might be important to make Durant feel involved with this team as it succeeds.

There are many things to consider – most notably the health of his calf.
