Tough luck for Kevin Durant.
Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals was supposed to be the night the Golden State Warriors forward returns to the court to begin their comeback after falling 3-1 in the best of seven series.
After starting out the game with 11 points in 12 minutes, jumpstarting the team, he then fell to the ground holding his leg in what ESPN is reporting to be a possible torn achillies.
Drake was on hand during the game in Toronto, and said a few words to him on the court while looking visibly upset at what just went down.

Following the game, the Toronto Raptors ambassador wrote a message to Durant on Instagram.
“Was tough for any of us to even enjoy that game tonight after seeing this transpire. Praying for our brother. That’s my only concern tonight is your well being. “The game needs me” is an understatement when it comes to 35. Please wish the best for this true warrior.”
