Durant (calf) might sit for Warriors on Wednesday night

Forward Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors officially is listed as questionable for Game 2 against the visiting Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

Durant recorded 32 points and 10 rebounds despite a strained left calf in the series-opening 121-109 victory on Sunday. He missed the team's shootaround on Wednesday morning.

ESPN reported, citing league sources, said Golden State is mulling the merits of sitting Durant on Wednesday as a means to give him five full days off before Game 3 on Saturday in Portland.

Durant missed 19 games because of a strained MCL and bone bruise in his left leg before returning at the end of the regular season.

Golden State guard Shaun Livingston (finger) and forward Matt Barnes (ankle) also are listed as questionable for Wednesday's game.

Portland will be without center Jusuf Nurkic, who is recovering from a right leg fracture that sidelined him for the final seven games of the regular season and the first playoff game.
