Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant won't travel to Portland for Games 3 and 4 of the Western Conference finals, Dubs general manager Bob Myers announced on NBC Sports Bay Area, according to The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

Durant sat out Game 2 of the series against the Trail Blazers on Thursday, his third straight game on the sidelines since injuring his right calf in Game 5 of the conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets.

The 30-year-old forward is "not close" to returning, a source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne on Thursday. Following Myers' announcement, the earliest Durant could return is for a possible Game 5, scheduled for next Wednesday.

Following the Dubs' Game 2 win Thursday, Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters that Durant's injury is "a little more serious than we thought."

Durant is averaging a league-high 34.2 points per contest and ranks third with a 65.5 true shooting percentage across 11 postseason games. The 30-year-old is also connecting on 51.3 percent of his attempts from the floor - including a 41.6 percent clip from distance - while adding 5.2 boards and 4.9 assists per game.

Golden State will look to take a 2-0 series lead over the Trail Blazers when the Western Conference final resumes Thursday at Oracle Arena.
