"We can all pretend and just say he's doubtful". The MRI confirmed the initial diagnosis (strained right calf).

"Durant will not travel with the team for Game 6 on Friday in Houston and will remain in the Bay Area for treatment", the team said in a release. He could return for the Western Conference Finals should Golden State advance.

Stephen A. Smith rips into the Rockets for their Game 5 loss to the Warriors and speculates about the severity of Kevin Durant's injury.

He took a step toward the defensive end of the court before grimacing in pain and looking down at his lower right leg, leading to concerns he might have ruptured his Achilles. I have to go back and look at the game. I thought [it was an Achilles' injury] because he kind of looked back like he had been kicked or something. That was my first question. Calf strain, he's had them before.

He has also averaged 5.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocked shots a game for the Warriors in the playoffs this season.

But Green then buried his 3-pointer, and after a Houston turnover, Thompson bombed in his trey to push the Golden State lead to 97-89 with 2:34 to go. "But he's excited for our guys and for our victory..."

Entering Wednesday's action, Durant ranked sixth in the National Basketball Association playoffs in minutes played.

"A lot of it is factored into this spot in Game 6 where obviously Houston's backs are against the wall".

Durant, 30, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

But the Rockets were right there until the final seconds and the defending MVP had no explanation for why he wasn't taking over when this was his moment to do so. However, Durant's injury only amplifies this specific handicapping situation, with the Rockets facing elimination.
