CWMALLS World Sports Sharing And Review Series – Kevin Durant injury update: Warriors president says K.D. suffered Achilles injury in Game 5 of NBA Finals, will have MRI

The Golden State Warriors got a massive win against the Toronto Raptors in Game 5 on Monday night. They also suffered a major loss. Kevin Durant was forced to leave the game in the second quarter after suffering an apparent right Achilles injury in his first game back since straining his calf.

After spending over a month sidelined due to the calf injury that he suffered against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals, Durant returned to action for Game 5 against the Raptors on Monday night. The reigning Finals MVP got off to a hot start, as he scored connected on his first three attempts from beyond the arc and scored 11 points in the first quarter. Unfortunately, his return was cut short in the second quarter when he re-injured his right leg.

After the halftime break, the Warriors announced that Durant would not return to the game due to a “right lower leg injury” and will get an MRI on Tuesday.

Following the game, a visibly emotional Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers met with the media members in attendance in Toronto and confirmed that Durant had, in fact, sustained an Achilles injury, but that the full extent of the injury was not yet known.

“It’s an Achilles injury,” Myers said, while fighting off tears. “I don’t know the extent of it. He’ll have an MRI tomorrow … I don’t believe there’s anybody to blame. But I understand this world. And if you have to, you can blame me. I run our basketball operations department.”

During the third quarter, Durant was spotted leaving the Warriors’ locker room at Scotiabank Arena on crutches which provides fans with another indication of how serious Durant’s latest injury is.

While his long-term health now comes into question, Durant took to social media to show support for his teammates after their victory in Game 5.

“I’m hurting deep in the soul right now I can’t lie,” Durant wrote. “But seeing my brother get this win was like taking a shot of tequila, I got new life. #dubs”

We will know more regarding the severity of Durant’s injury after his MRI on Tuesday.
