Kerr said Livingston's setback was somewhat worse than Durant's, but Golden State at least has until Sunday to rest them both before Game 4 of the first-round series.

"I'm good. It's nothing," Durant said of the setback, per Chris Haynes of ESPN. "It was a quick roll. It didn't completely turn. I'm fine."
The Warriors can ill-afford another setback, considering they are already without Stephen Curry, who's nursing a Grade 2 MCL sprain.
Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic reported the two-time MVP may not be ready for the start of the second round and "is still not close to playing," which has put more of the offensive onus on Durant.
The 6'9" Durant poured in 26 points in Thursday's win despite shooting 1-of-6 from deep, using his athleticism to get into the lane and his length to elevate over defenders and score from mid-range and inside. He also led the team with nine rebounds and was a willing passer when additional defensive help came his way, dishing six assists.
Livingston provided a spark off the bench with 16 points, helping the Warriors stave off the Spurs' consistent comeback attempts.
Golden State has won each of the first three games in this series by double digits and has a clear talent advantage with Kawhi Leonard (quad) out for the Spurs, but more difficult tests await. The defending champions will be hard-pressed in potential series against the likes of Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans or James Harden and the Houston Rockets if their key players continue struggling to stay healthy.
