Durant revealed the severity of of his injury on Wednesday, showing himself in a hospital bed and wrote:

 "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."

However, Warriors coach Steve Kerr has made statement just 15 minutes before Durant went public, they are all devastated after a collaborative decision to clear Durant to play on Game 5 - and had no idea that Durant risked a serious achilles injury.
