According to The Vertical, the Golden State Warriors fear that Kevin Durant may miss the rest of the regular season. As a reaction to Durant’s injury, the Warriors signed free agent forward Matt Barnes.

Durant injured his knee against his hometown team, the Washington Wizards, in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday night. The team, along with the league, are waiting on his MRI results that were taken at George Washington University hospital.

It looked like Wizards center Marcin Gortat pushed Zaza Pachulia into Durant when he had his foot planted. The Warriors said it was a hyper-extended knee immediately after the injury.

If this is a serious injury, which is indicated by the Barnes signing instead of signing José Calderón, like they planned to do before his injury, it would have ripple affects throughout the league. Durant is their leading scorer and rebounder. The team had to change their game to welcome Durant, but now without arguably the second-best player in the league, the Warriors would go back to Stephen Curry leading the way.

Durant was last injured during the 2014-15 season, where he missed 55 games with a right foot injury.
