After a made shot late in the third quarter of Game 5 of the Warriors-Rockets Western Conference Semi-Finals in Oakland, Kevin Durant came up limping, and it does not look good.
The injury strikes an uncanny resemblance to many achilles tears, where the player looks back at his leg thinking he was kicked despite nobody being there.

Durant headed straight to the Warriors locker room.
UPDATE: Durant’s injury has been diagnosed as a right calf strain. He will not return in Game 5.
