Durant, Livingston leave fourth quarter of Game 3 with tweaked ankles


The Golden State Warriors have had (more than) their fair share or injuries throughout the 2017-18 season, and it appears their run of bad luck isn’t over.

Late in the 4th quarter of Game 3 between the Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs, Kevin Durant lost control of a dribble after a steal attempt by Patty Mills . As he attempted to regain possession, he appeared to roll his left ankle. Durant fell to the ground, holding the ankle in question. He was able to get up under his own power and gingerly walk over to the bench, where he watched for a few minutes.

Maybe 10 game seconds after that, Shaun Livingston was advancing the ball up the court when he rolled an ankle of his own. Livingston popped up and was also able to walk on his own power, but after shooting a free throw Kerr took his veteran PG out of the game.

Both players left the bench shortly after that and headed to the locker room. Neither of these injuries appeared to be extremely serious, but we’d expect the Warriors to be extra careful with bringing Durant and Livingston back into the fold with the Spurs now facing an Everest-like 0-3 deficit.

This is a developing story, and we will keep you updated when they become available.
