Report: KD wasn't 'anywhere close to 100 percent' prior to Game 5

Report: KD wasn't 'anywhere close to 100 percent' prior to Game 5 As the basketball world awaits the official word on Kevin Durant's lower right leg injury - which some around the team reportedly expect to be a torn Achilles tendon - the process behind clearing the Golden State Warriors star for Game 5 has come under increased scrutiny. Despite being cleared to play in Toronto, Durant "was not anywhere close to 100 percent," sources told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. Durant had been out since May 8 due to a sprained right calf. He only practiced with his teammates for the first time on Sunday, barely more than 24 hours before Monday night's Game 5.

The Golden State Warriors believe that Kevin Durant has a torn Achilles’ tendon, according to a report.

Durant left Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night in the second quarter after suffering a non-contact injury. He had to be helped off the floor and left Scotiabank Arena on crutches and in a walking boot.

Durant will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, which the Warriors expect to confirm a tear, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

Warriors president Bob Myers confirmed after the game that the injury was to Durant’s Achilles and different from the calf strain he suffered against the Rockets in the conference semifinals.

The widespread belief was that Durant had torn his Achilles. Raptors coach Nick Nurse said in his postgame press conference that word spread within their team that Durant had torn something. Video also seemed to show the Achilles popping.

A torn Achilles’ tendon would keep Durant out for most of next season. Regardless of what the MRI shows, Durant is out for the rest of the Finals.
