Several Warriors players have shamed Raptors fans for cheering when KD went down with an injury, including DeMarcus Cousins, who labeled them "trash".

Woods, who suffered an Achilles injury in 2011, said he could empathise with Durant, who nearly certainly now faces several months of rehab to regain fitness. 'I was watching the game and felt awful.

If Durant has suffered an Achilles injury Woods knows what awaits the National Basketball Association all-star.

The Golden State Warriors kept their chances off a three-peat alive on Monday night with a dramatic victory over the Toronto Raptors in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals to stave off elimination and cut the Raptors' series lead to 3-2. "You just know. And I've been there".

Durant has signed a series of one-plus-one contract since joining the Warriors in 2016.

Even after dropping Game 5, history is still on the Raptors' side.

Prior to the injury, Durant was expected to command well over $30 million a season on a new deal.


Durant's injury has major long-term implications for the Warriors, and the league at large, but in the short-term it continues to leave the Golden State with a major hole in their lineup in the middle of the NBA Finals.

The Knicks still have two max salary slots and they still intend to explore Durant being part of the franchise whether he is able to play next season or not with what is feared to be a torn Achilles tendon.

Warriors GM Bob Myers delivered a tearful postgame press conference to reveal Durant had an Achilles injury with the extent of the tear unknown. Achilles tears can take from 8 to 12 months to recover.

"Emotionally, it's a little tough for him", Wanda replied.

'For ALL of you who question my son as a Man, question his Heart, question his Integrity and question his LOVE for the game of basketball, you DON'T know him, ' Wanda Durant wrote on Twitter. This too shall pass. God Bless you ALL'.

Durant had returned to play after being sidelined for weeks with a sore calf. He would have spoken to reporters after Game 5, but was no longer required to do so after suffering his injury.
