Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant suffered an Achilles injury in the club's Game 5 win over the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals, president of basketball operations Bob Myers told reporters postgame, including ESPN's Tim Bontemps.

Durant will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.

Myers said the team was cautious with the All-Star forward's rehab and consulted multiple experts before Durant was given the green light to suit up Monday. The Warriors executive also restated that Durant's initial injury was to his calf and not the Achilles.

"He was cleared to play tonight," said an emotional Myers. "That was a collaborative decision. 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."

Report: Durant traveling to New York for Achilles evaluation

Report: Durant traveling to New York for Achilles evaluation Kevin Durant is traveling to New York on Tuesday for a doctor's evaluation on his injured right Achilles tendon, league sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania. The Golden State Warriors stayed overnight in Toronto following the Game 5 victory over the Raptors in which Durant was injured. The Warriors said he was slated to undergo an MRI on his right leg Tuesday, and the team reportedly believes the results will confirm a torn right Achilles tendon.

Myers also defended the notion that Durant wasn't committed to the team and was looking out only for himself.

"Kevin Durant loves to play basketball and the people that questioned whether or not he wanted to get back to this team were wrong," Myers said. "He's one of the most misunderstood people. He's a good teammate, good person. It's not fair."

Durant took to social media following Game 5 and wrote that he was "hurting deep in the soul." The 30-year-old's absence weighed heavily on his teammates, including Klay Thompson.

"He's a warrior," Thompson said postgame. "You saw what he did tonight. He sacrificed his health for us. We dearly miss him. It was very deflating him to see him go out. I'm just going to pray for the guy and I know he'll be back even stronger."
