Warriors’ Durant exits Game 5 with calf strain

OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant suffered a right calf strain in the third quarter of Game 5 against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday and will not return.

Durant’s injury came with 2:11 left in the quarter as he went up for a jumper over Rockets swingman Iman Shumpert. Durant did not appear to make contact with Shumpert, but after landing, he took a few steps up the court, then clutched his right leg. He limped toward the Rockets bench, and after a few moments, he went straight to the Warriors locker room, accompanied by trainers and Warriors general manager Bob Myers.

Durant had 22 points, five rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes before leaving the game.

There was no immediate word on the severity of the strain.
