Kevin Durant tried to give it a go during Game 5 of the NBA Finals but barely made it into the second quarter. After coming out on fire, Durant went down in a heap with 9:46 to go before the half and immediately grabbed the back of his right leg.
Check it out:
Raptors fans briefly cheered when Durant went down, but their own players attempted to silence them.
Durant reportedly entered the game with no minutes or usage restrictions but it’s clear that wasn’t the best idea. It didn’t take him long to re-injure himself.
We’ll update Durant’s status when we hear more, but he certainly didn’t look like someone who was going to return to the game.
This video looks really bad:
UPDATE: Warriors general manager Bob Myers claims Durant suffered an Achilles injury but they don’t know how bad it is yet.
