KD Leaves Game 5 with RIght-Calf Strain, Set to Undergo MRI

NBA: Kevin Durant to have MRI on calf strain as Golden State Warriors win Game 5

Game 7, if necessary, would be played Sunday in Oakland.

The in-game report was that Durant had suffered a calf injury, but skepticism seemed to abound from analysts and media members because of the nature of the injury and the way that Durant reacted. "I was assured it's a calf strain, not the Achilles'".

That said, head coach Steve Kerr has already revealed that Durant will not be playing in Game 6 on Friday night. On Wednesday night, the Warriors got a dose of what losing a star player means before they managed to hold off the Rockets and secure a 104-99 win.

Ultimately, we don't know when he'll be back.

Kerr said he would huddle with his coaching staff on Thursday and decide how he will shuffle his lineup.

While the news is great for Durant, the timing of the injury couldn't be worse for the Warriors. "Big one for us on Friday", Harden said after the loss.

"Tough one, but we are capable of being better". He limped toward the Rockets' bench, and after a few moments, he went straight to the Warriors' locker room, accompanied by trainers and Myers.

Durant's injury came with 2:11 left in the third quarter as he went up for a jumper over Rockets swingman Iman Shumpert. Golden State found themselves in another thriller with Houston but the defending champs are holding their collective breaths as they await KD's impending MRI set for Thursday.

With Durant out for an indefinite amount of time, Curry acknowledged Wednesday that the Warriors would have to go back to how they played four years ago, before Golden State acquired its star forward.

Kerr talked with the injured Durant, who has been on an incredible roll in the post-season, after the Game 5.

"Hopefully", Kerr said, "we get Kevin back at some point".
