Durant, who had been out for more than a month with a calf injury, collapsed with just under 10 minutes remaining the second quarter and had to be helped off the floor.

After being evaluated in the locker room, Durant left Scotiabank Arena in a walking boot alongside his agent, Rich Kleiman, and Warriors general manager Bob Myers. The Warriors announced Durant will get an MRI on Tuesday.
NBA players immediately responded on Twitter offering messages of support for Durant.
Even with all the things @KDTrey5 has done. This is the most fan(ed) out I’ve been. He knew he wasn’t right but he wanted to be there for his brothers. That’s sports! That’s love!
