Thunder's Durant leaves game at Wizards with left leg injury

WASHINGTON (AP) Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder's game at the Washington Wizards at halftime with a strained left hamstring Tuesday night.

After getting fouled by Kris Humphries on a drive to the basket with 54.2 seconds left in the second quarter, Durant limped a bit and grabbed at the back of his left leg.

Durant made both free throws and stayed in the game for the rest of the half.

He had 14 points and 10 rebounds at halftime, playing 17 minutes.

Durant, who entered the night second in the NBA in scoring average, can become a free agent after this season, and the Wizards are among many teams expected to try to sign him. He was born in Washington and went to high school in nearby Rockville, Maryland.

He is a six-time All-Star and was the NBA MVP in the 2013-14 season.
