The Golden State Warriors won't have Kevin Durant on the court tonight, but he is definitely on the minds of his teammates, fans and the organization.

In fact, any fan at Oracle tonight will receive a free towel which serves as a tribute to the injured superstar. ESPN's Nick Friedell tweeted a picture of it earlier tonight.

The towel is yellow, with "For Oakland" written on it. However, the word 'for' and five of the seven letters in Oakland are written in blue, while the remaining two are in white.

Those two white letters are 'KD.'

Durant tore his right Achilles tendon in Monday night's Game 5 win over the Raptors. He had missed the previous nine games with a calf injury.

Yesterday, Durant underwent successful surgery in New York City to repair the ruptured tendon. He is expected to miss all of next season.

Game 6 of the NBA Finals tips off at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
