Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant will miss Game 6 against the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals. He suffered a calf injury in Game 5 on Wednesday night.
Durant will undergo an MRI on Thursday. At that time, the team will have a better idea on how long he will be out.
The star went up for a jump shot and once coming down, he thought someone had hit his leg. Yet, the Rockets defender did not touch him.
Once landing, he looked around him before being in a lot of pain. It initially looked like an Achilles injury but the team said it was a calf injury after some time.
Without Durant, the Warriors needed Steph Curry and Klay Thompson to step up. Golden State was able to get a boost from the Splash Brothers to win the game, as they went up 3-2 in their series.
There are three different kinds of calf strains, according to Very Well Health. A Grade I strain would sideline Durant for a week to 10 days.
A Grade II strain will sideline Durant for a month to six weeks. If he suffered the most severe injury, a Grade III strain, he will be sidelined for three months.
