Kevin Durant leaves Game 5 with non-contact leg injury

Amidst a Rockets comeback in the third quarter of Game 5, Kevin Durant left the game and limped to the Warriors locker room with a right-calf strain, the team announced. The play in question happened after Durant hit a mid-range jumper over Iman Shumpert. Durant appeared to land slightly on Shumpert’s foot, but didn’t appear to be in any initial discomfort. As he began his run back to the other end of the court, Durant pulled up lame, and was seemingly unable to move his right foot as he hobbled off the court.

He will not return to Wednesday’s game.
