The injury occurred early in the first quarter against Washington, when teammate Zaza Pachulia fell to the ground and rolled up against Durant’s left leg. The 28-year-old immediately limped off the court and into the locker room.
Durant signed a two-year, $54 million contract with Golden State in the offseason. He leads the Warriors in points (25.3 ppg), rebounds (8.2 rpg), and blocks (1.6 bpg).
Golden State (50-10) has the best record in the NBA, and owns a four-game cushion over San Antonio for the top seed in the Western Conference.
