Kevin Durant appears to injure Achilles in Game 5 vs. Rockets
In Game 5 between the Warriors and Rockets, Kevin Durant nailed a jumper in the face of Iman Shumpert, and appeared to injure his right Achilles.
After he made the jumper, Durant began running back on defense before looking back at his right foot and lifting it up in pain. He presumably thought someone made contact, possibly kicked him, in the foot, but it was obvious as Durant grabbed his Achilles and limped off the court gingerly into the locker room.

The good thing is that ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that early indications are that Durant did not injure his Achilles.
