After returning to practice Sunday and trending towards a return Monday morning, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski has said that Golden State Warriors all-star & two-time Finals MVP Kevin Durant plans to return Monday night for Game 5.

Durant's return will be a needed boost for a Warriors team on the verge of elimination and needing three straight wins to capture their third consecutive NBA championship.

If the Warriors can win game 5 on Monday the series will shift back to Oakland for game 6 in what would be the final game at Oracle Arena.

As far as Durant's availability in his first game back since May 8th, he's expected to be a "full-go" tonight.
