Kevin Durant won't be ready to play in time for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on May 30.

The two-time reigning finals MVP has yet to return to on-court work while recovering from a strained right calf.

Big man DeMarcus Cousins might be healthy for Golden State's series opener against either Milwaukee or Toronto.

"Potentially," coach Steve Kerr said Thursday, "but it's up in the air."

Cousins is working back from a torn left quadriceps muscle sustained in Game 2 of the first round against the Los Angeles Clippers. He practiced Thursday for the first time since getting injured April 16.

Andre Iguodala, who missed the Game 4 clincher against the Portland Blazers with a sore left calf, didn't practice Thursday but is expected to be at full strength to start the Finals.

One LeBron streak ends

LeBron James' streak of 11 consecutive seasons as a first-team All-NBA player, a record he shared with Karl Malone, came to an end. He did, however, make his 15th straight appearance on the All-NBA roster as a member of the third team — joining Kobe Bryant as the only players to make that many teams in consecutive fashion. The 15th All-NBA nod also tied James with Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Tim Duncan for the most in league history (full All-NBA list on C7).
