Kevin Durant still has multiple steps to take before he can return to the court for the Golden State Warriors.

The 30-year-old Warriors star has yet to return to practice as he deals with a calf injury, coach Steve Kerr told reporters on Wednesday.

Durant has already been ruled out for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

"His next step is individual court work, so that will be the next priority over the next couple of days," Kerr said.

"Hopefully he can wrap that up, and then he's going to have to practice. We have to see him in practice before he can play a game, and he hasn't practiced yet."

Durant has been out since straining his calf in Golden State's Game 5 win over the Rockets in the second round. The Warriors went on to close out Houston in six games before sweeping the Portland Trail Blazers in the Western Conference Finals.

Durant, who was having a stellar postseason before the injury, travelled with the team for Games 1 and 2 in Toronto.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Warriors and Raptors is in Toronto on Thursday.
