Kevin Durant’s return to the Golden State lineup was going swimmingly until early in the second quarter when he re-injured his right calf.
Durant went down while handling the ball on the perimeter. After hobbling a couple of steps, he fell to the floor grabbing his right calf and Achilles area.
Trainers were immediately summoned from the Golden State bench. Durant had scored 11 points before the injury.

Durant walked off the court under his own power but headed right to the locker room.
He could be heard uttering a loud expletive as he exited the floor.
We’ll keep you posted on his status as more info comes forward, but it is tough to imagine him coming back from this.
Golden State leads in Game 5 on ABC.
