Kerr said after Durant tore his Achilles that he was stunned based on the information doctors gave him, but it sounds like what he meant was that it was truly a freak occurrence. Durant’s mother hinted that there is some question about whether or not Kevin received good advice.

The Warriors have implied that Durant’s Achilles injury was totally separate from his calf injury, but that is hard to believe. Either way, Durant doesn’t have much to complain about if his own personal specialist and other doctors all agreed with what the team’s medical staff told him.
