Kevin Durant left Game 5 of the NBA Finals with an injury that looked really bad. After missing a few weeks of the playoffs and the entirety of the finals, he returned on Monday night but was quickly felled by a right leg injury.
He wound up being helped back to the locker room and was seen leaving the arena with a boot on his leg during the game.
Warriors general manager Bob Myers later addressed the media and was brought to tears. He said it was an Achilles injury though he doesn’t know how bad it is.
I think it’s safe to say that no amount of optimism is likely to bring Durant back into this series. He appeared to be pretty badly injured.
