Looks like we’re now finding out KD wasn’t 100% healthy, and probably shouldn’t have played in Game Five of the NBA Finals on his tender calf.
Kevin Durant was injured two minutes into the second quarter in Game 5 on Monday night.

In a new report from a source close to the situation, Durant wasn’t exactly his healthiest heading into the game.
“Even though he was cleared for Game 5, Durant was not anywhere close to 100 percent,” Haynes explained. “The individual workout sessions and the light practice session on Sunday could not simulate the rigors of an ultra-competitive championship game.”
The Warriors also placed no minute restrictions upon KD’s return, which is a bit strange considering his injury, and just how valuable of a player he is.
Clearly he got pushed back onto the court a bit too early.
