Warriors GM Breaks Down In Tears After Kevin Durant Injury

Adjust Comment Print

Warriors star forward Kevin Durant suffered an Achilles injury in Monday's win over the Raptors.

Durant had missed the previous nine games with what the Warriors insist was a strained calf muscle. But that came to a screeching halt when the extremely large lad went down a few moments into the second quarter clutching the bothersome right leg that's kept him on the sidelines since the Warriors' Eastern Conference semifinal matchup against Houston over a month ago.

Of course, Raptors Global Ambassador Drake is present at the game, alongside several prominent athletes were on hand to cheer on Toronto including former Raptor Vince Carter, Wayne Gretzky, Jose Bautista and multiple Maple Leaf players.

He was seen leaving Scotiabank Arena on crutches. The Toronto crowd initially booed him off the court, but the Raptors players turned it around and praised the two-time former Finals MVP Award victor with applause.

Warriors officials have yet to determine the severity of Durant's Achilles injury.

Bob Myers holds back tears as he explains the magnitude of Kevin Durant's injury. "That's just not a normal thing for most of us", she says.

"I don't think the fans knew the significance of the injury", he said.

Lewis Hamilton has assured Lando Norris that his claim Formula One should be a man's sport was not aimed at the British teenager. It was a big step for me to go to a plant-based diet and it has a very positive affect on me mentally and physically.

Myers said he didn't know how the injury was different from Durant's calf injury or what was different about it. "We have an idea of how we're going to play and what our rotation will look like, and of course I'm not going to tell you that". I run our basketball operations department.

"We do it for Kevin", Thompson said. It got as high as 13 on Curry's four-point play, and Golden State led 62-56 at halftime.

The message came from Durant's mother Wanda, who posted an impassioned message aimed at those questioning her son's commitment to the game and to his teammates, following his heartbreaking leg injury on Monday night.

Mark Stevens, a Warriors investor and member of the team's executive board, shoved Kyle Lowry after the Raptors guard dove into a row of courtside seats in an effort to save a loose ball.

The Warriors spent the night in Toronto and aren't expected to leave until around noon ET on Tuesday. The crowd inside the arena that included hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky and former Raptors star Vince Carter thought it would witness history as Leonard powered past his defenders repeatedly in the fourth quarter.

It would've been nice for the Raptors to close it out in front of their fans at home, but they still have two chances to close out the series and win their first NBA Championship.
