Irritation reportedly grew inside the Warriors locker room as players questioned why Kevin Durant did not play in the must-win Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

Things are starting to look dire for the Golden State Warriors as they approach Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors are currently suffering from a 3-1 series deficit, and the team’s superstar Kevin Durant has been consistently absence from their games.

Just yesterday, rumors surfaced that "something changed" in the reigning Finals MVP’s status. But due to his continued absence even from the bench sidelines and his decision not to talk to the media, it has been hard to figure out what may have caused the sudden change at this moment, Clutch Points reported.

According to a new story from The Bleacher Report, league sources claimed that Warriors players questioned Durant's decision not to suit up for Game 4. In addition to this, it has also been reported that “irritation grew” inside the team’s locker room after the devastating loss to the Toronto Raptors due to the fact that DeMarcus Cousins, Andre Iguodala, Kevon Looney and Klay Thompson have stepped up despite their injuries, but Durant didn’t do the same.

Rumors implied that the Warriors players may think that Durant has been choosing not to play when it is quite evident that he could.

Durant has not spoken about his true condition and thoughts regarding his injury. This led to reporters pressing Warriors head coach Steve Kerr to speak about what is really going on with the 30-year-old NBA superstar.

Kerr has been doing well in press conferences and managed to stay safe, at times vague with every information he reveals pertaining to Durant. But in a recent interview, Kerr went straight to the point and admitted that there is so much going on within the team these days for him to exhaust himself more by talking about Durant’s status.

"We're hoping [Durant] can play Game 5 or 6. And everything in between I've decided I'm not sharing because it's just gone haywire. There's so much going on, and so it doesn't make sense to continue to talk about it. He's either going to play or he's not,” Kerr said.

The Warriors will once again face the Raptors tomorrow in Toronto for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, and it is still uncertain whether Durant will play or not.
