Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant is out for the rest of the regular season. He is expected to be back in six weeks for the playoffs.

The Warriors are expected to confirm the news on Wednesday morning. He was injured on Tuesday night against the Washington Wizards in his hometown of Washington, D.C.

“It is not as bad as it looked,” a source told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

Initially the Warriors said it was a hyper-extended injury. However, almost immediately after his injury, the Warriors signed Matt Barnes, which he confirmed, which indicated Durant’s injury was worse than that.

On the play, Wizards center Marcin Gortat appeared to push Warriors center Zaza Pachulia into Durant, while his leg was planned. After the injury, he was immediately in pain and left the court for the locker room.

The Warriors lost their 10th game — one more than last season. But that loss was not on their minds as they were more concerned with their teammate.

Durant had an MRI last night at George Washington University hospital. The team has announced on Wednesday morning that he suffered a Grade 2 MCL sprain along with a bruised tibia.
