OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Latest from Friday night's Game 4 of the NBA Finals (all times local):

4:50 p.m.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr says he done providing details of Kevin Durant's rehab.

The two-time reigning finals MVP is missing his ninth straight game since straining his right calf in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston.

Kerr said Friday before Game 4 that the Warriors are "hoping he can play Game 5 or 6. And everything in between I've decided I'm not sharing because it's just gone haywire."

The coach says "there's so much going on ... it doesn't make sense to continue to talk about it. He's either going to play or he's not. So tonight he's not playing."

4:25 p.m.

Kevon Looney got a second opinion and a second chance to play in these NBA Finals.

After Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Looney would miss the remainder of the series against Toronto with a displaced first costal cartilage fracture, the team now says he may be able to play in Game 4.

Kerr says Looney is "just tough and he wants to play."

Looney got hurt in Game 2 when he was defending a drive by Toronto's Kawhi Leonard.

Looney has been a major part of the Warriors' big-man rotation. His addition is an obvious boost.

4:15 p.m.

Hall of Famer Al Attles is expected to attend Game 4 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena.

Al Attles III told The Associated Press Friday his 82-year-old father will be in attendance. It will be the first game Attles, who has had health issues, has attended this season.

The Warriors trail the series 2-1 and this could be the final game at Oracle Arena with the team moving into a new building next season.

The former point guard was named player coach of the Warriors midway through the 1969-70 season. He guided the Rick Barry-led Golden State team to the 1975 NBA title.

9:40 a.m.

The NBA Finals resume Friday night amid the fallout from the incident involving Toronto guard Kyle Lowry.

Game 4 of the title series between Toronto and Golden State is on tap. The off day following the Raptors' Game 3 win on Wednesday was dominated by reactions to Warriors' investor Mark Stevens shoving Lowry at courtside. Stevens was banned by the league for a year and fined $500,000.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says Stevens was spared a lifetime ban because he's never been disciplined by the league before and because he was deeply apologetic for his actions.

Kevin Durant will not play in Game 4 for Golden State as he continues recovering from his calf injury, but the Warriors are getting Klay Thompson back after a one-game absence with a strained hamstring.
