After losing the first two games of the series on the road, the Rockets head back to Golden State for Game 5 on Wednesday night with momentum on their side after their overtime win in Game 3 before Monday night's victory.
Durant, 30, appeared to suffer the injury late in the third quarter after attempting a mid-range jump shot. In the four games vs. Houston entering Wednesday night, Durant averaged 36 points per contest and had been averaging 35.4 points per game over the course of the entire playoffs. According to ESPN Stats & Info, the Warriors have been outscored by 14 points with Durant on the bench in these playoffs.
That could end up being a huge blow for a Golden State team that has yet to win a game in Houston this series.

Curry had 25 points, with 16 coming after Durant's injury.
Shaun Livingston, who came into Friday shooting just 34 percent in the postseason - seemingly on his way out of the league - churned in 11 calming points, helping right the ship until Stephen Curry took over in the second half. "I am proud of the guys and the way they pulled out this win and we will see about Kevin tomorrow", Kerr said. "We talk about strength in numbers, but the coach wasn't doing much of that the first five games".
Milwaukee advance to the Eastern Conference finals, where they are to have home-court advantage over the victor of the other East second-round series between the Toronto Raptors and the Philadelphia 76ers. Gordon, who had a play-off career-high 30 points in Game 3, scored 20 points or more in consecutive play-off games for the first time in his career.
