Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Kevin Durant ruptured his Achilles and has had surgery”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant confirmed that the injury he suffered during Game 5 of the NBA Finals was indeed a ruptured Achilles tendon, and that he had surgery on Wednesday to repair it.

Durant had returned from a monthlong absence from a calf strain to rejoin the Warriors, who trail the Raptors 3-2 in the Finals. He didn’t exactly look fully healthy before suffering the injury on Monday night, but he scored 11 points in the first quarter before suffering the injury. It had been immediately assumed that Durant had a serious Achilles injury, and an MRI in New York confirmed it.

What’s good everybody I wanted to update you all: I did rupture my Achilles. Surgery was today and it was a success, EASY MONEY My road back starts now! I got my family and my loved ones by my side and we truly appreciate all the messages and support people have sent our way. Like I said Monday, I'm hurting deeply, but I'm OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that’s what I do. I wanted to help my teammates on our quest for the three peat. Its just the way things go in this game and I'm proud that I gave it all I physically could, and I'm proud my brothers got the W. It's going to be a journey but I'm built for this. I’m a hooper I know my brothers can get this Game 6, and I will be cheering  with dub nation while they do it.

The MVP of the last two Finals wrote on Instagram, “Like I said Monday, I’m hurting deeply, but I’m OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that’s what I do.

It’s going to be a journey but I’m built for this. I’m a hooper I know my brothers can get this Game 6, and I will be cheering with dub nation while they do it.”

Curiously, less than half an hour before Durant announced that he had successful surgery on a ruptured Achilles tendon, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that there was no update on Durant — not what the diagnosis was, or that he was having surgery.
