Report: Durant will fly with Warriors to Toronto for start of NBA Finals

SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (KGO) -- Kevin Durant will travel with the Golden State Warriors as they travel to Toronto today. The superstar will not play in Game 1 as he has not been cleared for any on-court work since injuring his right calf during the conference semifinals.

Center DeMarcus Cousins is questionable for Game 1. He has been sidelined since April 15 with a torn quad muscle.

While the Warriors have to deal with the Raptors on the court, they'll also be dealing with rapper Drake, on the sideline. He's a Raptors superfan, yet also has tattoos honoring Steph and KD.

Head coach Steve Kerr says he considers Drake's antics, fun.

"He's always up there, our guys are always talking trash, it's fun, the NBA kind of embraces the pop culture dynamic. We got E-40 ready, we're in good shape," said Kerr.
