Kevin Durant confirms he suffered ruptured right Achilles - Jun 12, 2019

Kevin Durant
Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant (6'9''-SF-88, college: Texas) says on social media he underwent surgery for a ruptured right Achilles tendon. Durant revealed the severity of his injury Wednesday, two days after getting hurt during Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Toronto in his return after being sidelined for a month with a right calf strain. The photo posted on Wednesday shows Durant recovering from surgery in a hospital bed. "My road back starts now!" Durant wrote in the caption. "I got my family and loved ones by my side and we truly appreciate all the messages and support people have sent our way. "Like I said Monday, I'm hurting deeply, but I'm OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that's what I do. I wanted to help my teammates on our quest for the three peat. "Its just the way things go in this game and I'm proud that I gave it all I physically could, and I'm proud my brothers got the W. It's going to be a journey but I'm built for this. I'm a hooper I know my brothers can get this Game 6, and I will be cheering with dub nation while they do it." The Warriors also released a statement a few hours later to say the surgery was successful and performed at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said during Wednesday's media availability that the team had no idea Durant risked a serious Achilles injury by returning from a strained calf. "Kevin checked all the boxes," Kerr said. "He was cleared to play by everybody involved. Now, would we go back and do it over again? Damn right. But that's easy to say with the results. "When we gathered all the information, our feeling was the worst thing that could happen would be a re-injure of the calf. That was the advice and the information that we had. At that point, once Kevin was cleared to play, he was comfortable with that, we were comfortable with that. So the Achilles came as a complete shock." Durant left in the second quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, a game Golden State went on to win 106-105 to keep its season alive. The Warriors All-Star forward was seen leaving the arena on crutches and in a walking boot. He got hurt on a dribble on the right wing, coming up lame on a crossover move and falling to the floor. He grabbed the back of his leg, appeared to grab below the calf and more toward the Achilles area, and needed help to limp to the bench area and more help to get back to the Warriors' locker room. Warriors forward Andre Iguodala was on Durant's left side as they made the long walk back to the room, with Bob Myers and Stephen Curry in the group immediately behind them. Players have made comebacks off Achilles surgery, with relative levels of success. DeMarcus Cousins, Kobe Bryant, and Rudy Gay all came back; Cousins hasn't regained past form yet. Dominique Wilkins had an Achilles tear happen to him at the peak of his career and he arguably was as good as ever afterward. Elton Brand, now leading the Philadelphia 76ers' front office, had it as a player and said he was never the same. Christian Laettner went from a star to a role player when his Achilles ripped. "I've been there," 15-time golf major winner Tiger Woods said Tuesday at the U.S. Open. "I've had it to my own Achilles. I've had it to my own back. I know what it feels like. It's an awful feeling. And no one can help you. That's the hard part." Before returning to the floor on Monday night, Durant had been sidelined for more than a month with a strained calf suffered in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets. Durant was cleared by the Warriors' medical staff after Game 4, and participated in both a practice session Sunday and a shootaround practice earlier Monday. The Warriors had said throughout his month-long absence that they did not want him back on the floor until he was right, for fear of the exact scenario they now face -- Durant being out longer than just a few weeks. He played well in Game 5, scoring 11 points in 12 minutes while making all three of his 3-point attempts. He started and played the first six minutes, then had the lower leg wrapped with a heating pad to keep it loose before he returned about three minutes later. Then, it all came crashing down and the Warriors were left to pick up the pieces and make sense of it all after their latest Finals win. "It's a bizarre feeling that we all have right now," Kerr said. "An incredible win and a horrible loss at the same time." "It sucks. I feel so bad for him, his camp," Warriors guard Klay Thompson said. "He's going to come back stronger though. That's the kind of fighter he is and I'm going to miss him, man. It's not the same being out there without him." Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers was openly emotional when he told media members after Game 5 that the injury was to Durant's right Achilles.
