With less than seven minutes to go during the Golden State Warriors’ game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday, Kevin Durant went to jump for the ball and ended up laying on the ground before walking off on his own. Durant never returned to the game , which the Warriors lost 115-111.
Durant’s injury has been labeled as an “ankle contusion.” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said after the game, “he had an ankle contusion, but I don’t think it’s bad. I talked to him briefly, he didn’t seem to think it was too bad.”
As of right now, Durant’s condition is “day-to-day” and it is still up in the air whether or not he will be in the lineup on Wednesday night when the team takes on the Houston Rockets.
The Warriors are currently first in the Western Conference with a record of 45-21.
