    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Could miss all of 2019-20 season

    Kevin Durant (Achilles) is at risk of missing the entire 2019-20 season while recovering from a ruptured right Achilles, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.Given the timing of the injury, this isn't exactly breaking news, but Woj included the nugget in a story regarding Kyrie Irving, who some believed could team with Durant in New York or Brooklyn next season. Achilles tears entail a lengthy recovery period, but some players have been able to return to game action in less than a calendar year, so in theory it's possible that Durant -- wherever he ends up this summer -- could return late next season. However, Durant is likely to exercise caution given the circumstances, and Woj's report would seem to imply that Durant's team is prepared for him to miss the entirety of next season.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Undergoes Achilles surgery

    Kevin Durant underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn right Achilles tendon, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.Minutes after coach Steve Kerr told the media he did not have an update on Durant, Charania reports that the superstar already underwent surgery to repair the injury that was widely speculated. Durant, himself, took to Instagram to announce that the procedure went well. "I wanted to update you all: I did rupture my Achilles," Durant wrote in a caption. "Surgery was today and it was a success." A recovery timetable is unlikely to be released any time soon, but it's widely expected that Durant will remain out for much, if not all, of the 2019-20 NBA season.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: No official injury update

    Coach Steve Kerr said Wednesday that he does not yet have an update on the injury Kevin Durant sustained during Monday's Game 5, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports. "We don't have any news on Kevin right now," Kerr said. "As soon as we have some updates we'll let you know."It's been more than 36 hours since Durant limped off the floor with what appeared to be a right Achilles injury, but the team is yet to provide an official update. In a press conference after the game, GM Bob Myers revealed that Durant would undergo an MRI on Tuesday, and the results of that scan have not yet been made public. The Golden State Warriors are reportedly concerned that Durant tore his Achilles tendon, and while that still appears to be the most likely scenario, Durant's camp is yet to offer any confirmation.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: May have torn Achilles' tendon

    The Golden State Warriors believe that Kevin Durant suffered a torn right Achilles' tendon in Monday's 106-105 win over the Raptors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. General manager Bob Myers said Durant will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of the injury.Before returning to action for the elimination game, Durant had been sidelined since May 8 with a right calf injury, missing nine postseason games in total. Despite being less than fully healthy and having only minimal practice time beforehand, Durant played well over 12 minutes -- scoring 11 points on 3-for-5 shooting from the field and 3-for-3 shooting from beyond the arc -- before his right leg appeared to give out on him when he was attempting to drive past Serge Ibaka with just under 10 minutes left in the second quarter. If the MRI confirms that Durant ruptured his Achilles, he would miss the remainder of the NBA Finals, and quite likely, a fair chunk of the 2019-20 campaign as well. The injury would also have major ramifications on the NBA offseason, as Durant, who was expected to enter free agency, could elect to exercise his $31.5 million player option to remain with the Warriors.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Achilles injury confirmed

    Kevin Durant suffered an Achilles injury and will undergo an MRI Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.A truly devastating blow for the Golden State Warriors and NBA fans alike as Durant only managed to log 12 minutes in Game 5 after missing the previous nine postseason contests. Look for more confirmation as to the extent of the injury to come Tuesday after he undergoes the MRI. Should he be ruled out for Game 6, look for Andre Igudola to likely return to the starting rotation, with the Warriors forced to rely heavily upon some combination of Jonas Jerebko, Alfonzo McKinne, Jordan Bell and Andrew Bogut off the bench.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Will not return in Game 5

    Kevin Durant will not return to Monday's Game 5 against the Raptors with a lower leg injury, Ramona Shelbourne of ESPN.com reports.Durant was forced to exit in the second quarter of Game 5 after suffering a non-contact injury while he made a move towards the hoop. It's unclear what the injury is at this point, however it didn't look good as he seemed to re-aggravate the calf injury that kept him out the past few weeks. He's set to undergo an MRI Tuesday, and he should be considered questionable at this time, however his status for the remainder of the playoffs seems to be in doubt as he was seen exiting the arena in a walking boot and crutches.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Will play in Game 5

    Kevin Durant (calf) will play in Monday's Game 5 against Toronto, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.This comes as no surprise, as it's been reported all day that Durant was expected to play. It's unclear how well he's feeling, or whether or not the calf will affect his play, but with the Golden State Warriors' backs against the wall, they're turning to Durant to fend off elimination. At this time, there's no restrictions on his minutes, but coming off a lengthy absence with little practice time, it's unclear where his conditioning will be. Expect Durant to start, likely bumping Andre Iguodala to the bench.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Plans to play in Game 5

    Kevin Durant (calf) plans to play in Monday's Game 5 against Toronto, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.Durant went through shootaround Monday morning and officially remains a game-time call, but this latest information implies that the two-time Finals MVP will make his return to the court for the first time since Game 5 against the Rockets. It's very much unclear how healthy Durant's right calf will be -- and his conditioning may be just as much of a concern -- but with the Golden State Warriors up against the ropes, expect Durant to be back in the mix. Earlier Monday, coach Steve Kerr commented that if Durant does play, he's not expected to face a firm minutes restriction.

    Warriors' Kevin Durant: Will be game-time call

    Kevin Durant (calf) went through a full shootaround Monday morning and is considered a game-time call for Game 5 against Toronto, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.Durant's presence at shootaround is certainly an encouraging sign, but the two-time reigning Finals MVP immediately went to the training room after the session to begin receiving treatment. That implies that he's still dealing with some discomfort in his right calf, so if Durant is ultimately cleared to play, he'd likely do so at less than 100 percent. With that said, coach Steve Kerr sounded relatively optimistic after watching Durant at shootaround. "He looked good," Kerr said. "We'll see where it goes." Kerr did not reveal, however, whether Durant was able to scrimmage at all between Games 4 and 5, though he did note that if Durant is cleared to play, he won't have a firm minutes restriction.
