This is not good.
Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant underwent surgery for a ruptured Achilles, he confirmed Wednesday on Instagram.
“My road back starts now!” Durant wrote. “I got my family and my loved ones by my side and we truly appreciate all the messages and support people have sent our way. Like I said Monday, I’m hurting deeply, but I’m OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that’s what I do. I wanted to help my teammates on our quest for the three peat.”
The diagnosis officially ends the 2013-14 NBA MVP’s season.
Durant had missed the Warriors’ previous nine games after he left Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals on May 8. He was diagnosed with a right calf strain.
He probably came back too soon. Wishing him a speedy recovery.
Game 6 will be played at Oracle Arena on Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.
