Raptors fans chant ‘KD’ after initially cheering Kevin Durant’s injury

Warriors, Raptors, Kevin Durant, NBA Finals

Toronto Raptors fans showed their respect to Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant after he left the second quarter of Game 5 with another injury.

Some Raptors fans initially cheered when Durant went down in the second quarter. Raps guard Kyle Lowry and Warriors sharpshooter Klay Thompson then asked the fans to stop.

This was KD’s first game since suffering a right calf strain in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals. He had 11 points and two rebounds in 12 minutes.

Durant was diagnosed with a lower left leg injury. He left Scotiabank Arena in crutches while wearing a walking boot. He has an MRI scheduled on Tuesday.

Durant suffered the injury when he collided with Raptors forward Serge Ibaka, who stole the ball from him. As Ibaka was leading the fast break, KD fell to the floor and clutched his lower right leg. He had to be helped up and led off the court into the tunnel.

If the Dubs will be able to force Game 6 against the Raptors, there’s still no word on whether or not Kevin Durant will be able to play. At this point, however, it would be best for Golden State to finish this series without him rather than risk another injury.
