Kevin Durant to undergo MRI for Achilles injury

Kevin Durant injury

Kevin Durant will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the extent of his Achilles injury.

Durant re-injured his lower right leg in the second quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday. He was trying to make a move on Serge Ibaka went he stepped on his right foot and went down.

Durant limped off the court and was helped into the locker room for medical attention.

The Golden State Warriors announced during the third quarter that Durant was out for the rest of the game with a lower leg injury and would undergo an MRI.

Former Chargers team doctor and current sports injury analyst David Chao says Durant was clearly grabbing at his Achilles and the question is whether it is ruptured or strained.

Durant was playing his first game since injuring his right calf during Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets on May 8. He had a setback when trying to practice ahead of Game 4 on Friday but was cleared to play in Game 5 three days later.

He ended up leaving Scotiabank Arena on crutches.
