Durant suffered a right calf strain late in the third quarter of Wednesday's Game 5 contest.
The Golden State Warriors may have won Game 5 against the Rockets on Wednesday, but the team fears they may have lost Kevin Durant for some time.
During the third quarter of Wednesday's matchup, Durant left the game with a right calf strain and did not return.
Durant suffered the injury after pulling up for a jump shot along the baseline. He rose and appeared to step on the foot of Houston's Iman Shumpert, then grabbed his lower leg before departing with trainers to the locker room. He walked away under his own power.
The two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP was averaging 35.4 points going into Game 5.
