Anything can happen in an NBA game — or pregame. Phoenix Suns got reminded of that the hard way when superstar forward and prized trade deadline acquisition Kevin Durant slipped on the floor and injured his ankle during pregame workouts, forcing him to be ruled out of Wednesday night’s showdown against the Oklahoma City Thunder at home.

Before we get to the reactions, here’s the moment where Kevin Durant apparently suffered the lower-body injury.

Of course, Suns fans are not at all amused by this development. Kevin Durant is supposed to be the one that helps Phoenix get over the hump and win it all, but now, there are concerns about his availability in the coming few games, at least.

“Are you freaking serious? Here we go,” said Twitter user @taylor4arizona, who could not believe what just happened.

Others are also blaming Suns ball boys for Kevin Durant’s injury, which seems unfair because nobody wanted this kind of incident.

Here’s a rather cleaner angle on the exact moment Kevin Durant hurt his left ankle.

That one is painful to look at.

Durant had also just recently returned from a sprained right MCL, which caused a delay to his Suns debut, so this is yet another injury that might see the former league MVP sidelined for a considerable amount of time.

The hope is that all it would take for Kevin Durant to return to action is some rest.

The Suns will have two days of break after the Thunder game before playing the Sacramento Kings at home on Saturday.
