Kawhi Leonard offers advice to Kevin Durant on injury recovery process

Kevin Durant got to hack on the field after being cleared from a calf injury for his team.

The Warriors previously announced that Durant suffered an Achilles injury, but were unable to offer a more specific diagnosis.

But the crowd will be fervent in the last game in the NBA's oldest arena, and Curry says the team will be up to the task, thanks in large part to the compassion they feel for Durant. But one of the fans felt guilty and condemned the actions, calling them "dumba**es".

His ruptured Achilles tendon complicates the future, but according to Ian Begley of SNY, there is a still a push within the Knicks organization to pursue Durant. Myers was seen trying to hold back his tears while he said, "Its an Achilles injury....he might have an MRI tomorrow" on Monday night right after Durant's exit.

Durant has many more years of prime basketball left.

Durant confirmed Wednesday from NY that he had undergone surgery to fix the rupture. "If you have to, you can blame me".

Durant announced his successful procedure with a message on his Instagram, which included a photo of him in the hospital.

My road back starts now!

"The people that questioned whether he wanted to get back and play were wrong". And just like I said, attack each day. But he has no doubt the team's battle against the Golden State Warriors has put them in a bigger spotlight and will lead to increased basketball participation. "The game needs me" is an understatement when it comes to 35. I think, once your adrenaline is going, it's a lot different than you watching the game because your mindset is totally different. One doesn't really need to be a doctor to tell that Durant's injury is perhaps serious.

"You will be back better then ever...."

Wanda was at home watching Game 5 of the NBA Finals when she saw Kevin hobble off the Toronto Raptors' court just 12 minutes into his return from a calf injury that had sidelined him for a month. "The Achilles came as a complete shock".

Before long, fans took to Twitter to share this basic fact, making Boucher a trending topic right around the same time the Sun likely deleted its article.

This time several fans hurled profanities at Sonya and Dell Curry when they returned to their hotel after watching their son, Golden State Warriors' star point guard Steph Curry, beat the Raptors 106-105 in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

"I just have to not have weight on it after the surgery", Tory said.
