Kevin Durant left the Golden State Warriors Game 5 against the Toronto Raptors in the second quarter after re-aggravating his calf injury.

Durant - who hadn’t played in over a month since straining his calf - jump-stopped just a few minutes into the second quarter. While doing so his calf again appeared to give out on him, and he quickly fell to the floor.

After calling for teammates to come help him up, Durant limped off the court, but needed help to do so. Cameras caught him yelling in frustration as he left the court.

It’s a heartbreaking injury for Durant, who worked so hard to get back on the court. This will surely end his season.

Furthermore, KD was playing very well. In just 12 minutes he had 11 points, 2 rebounds, and 1 block, while shooting 3-3 from beyond the arc.

The aftermath of the injury was odd. The Raptors fans initially appeared to cheer. However, a few Toronto players quickly lit into their fans and changed the reaction.
