Report: Durant “Not Anywhere Close To 100%” Before Game 5

Kevin Durant re-injuring his right leg was the biggest story of Game 5, with the team reportedly afraid that he suffered an Achilles tear. But should Durant have been out there in the first place?

According to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, Durant was “not anywhere close to 100 percent” during pregame warmups.

The star forward had missed a month with a calf injury and reportedly “fought valiantly” to return in time for the Finals. Warriors president Bob Myers called Durant’s return a “collaborative decision”.
