When Kevin Durant went down with an Achilles injury during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night, some Toronto Raptors supporters were seen cheering and waving goodbye. Now, one fan is trying to make things right by encouraging others to donate to Durant's charity.

A GoFundMe campaign was launched Tuesday to raise money for the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation, which helps at-risk youth from low-income backgrounds through educational, athletics, and social programs.

"On behalf of the level-headed and true fans of Raptor Nation - from Toronto to Vancouver to Iqaluit to St. John's, and any fans living outside Canada: we wanted to say 'sorry,'" Hamzah Moin, who created the GoFundMe, wrote. "We're sorry that some fans of Raptor Nation at the Scotiabank Arena, Jurassic Park, and in some bars/restaurants showing the game, displayed an ugly side of fandom when they cheered on the injury of Kevin Durant.

Warriors say Durant will practice before Game 5

Warriors say Durant will practice before Game 5 TORONTO — Kevin Durant was playing basketball on Sunday. The Golden State Warriors hope he will again on Monday. With the Warriors' backs to the wall now in the NBA Finals, Durant — now out for more than a month with a strained calf — was taking the practice floor on Sunday in an effort to determine if he will be able to play in Game 5 of the title series on Monday night. The Warriors trail the Toronto Raptors 3-1 in the series, and need three straight wins to capture a third straight championship. "He'll get some extra work in with some of our younger players and we'll gauge it from there," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Durant was not made available to comment.
