Kevin Durant Calls Calf Strain “A Bummer”

Kevin Durant just cant shake the injury bug.

Kevin Durant just cant shake the injury bug. After returning from an MCL sprain suffered near the end of the regular season, he suffered a calf strain in the third quarter of Sundays Game 1 against the Blazers.

Durant spent a few minutes on Thursday updating fans via his “Feeling Good” YouTube live streaming session and discussed his recovery.

Felt good to finish the game, but afterward it just tightened up on me a little bit and I was sore for the next few days, Durant explained, dressed in a blue Team USA shirt. Felt like I could go yesterday (for Game 2), but Coach (Steve) Kerr and the training staff and the whole organization told me it would be best to give it a few days rest. So hopefully I see how I feel these next couple days.

Durant is obviously upset about missing more playing time.


Its a bummer, man. A bummer. I hate being out; I hate being hurt, he said.


Golden State can handle Portland without KD, so if rest is the answer, so be it.

Im getting better every day, Durant said. Hopefully I can be out there with my teammates, grinding it out, trying to move forward and get a W in Game 3.

Durant also displayed his recording studio, which is his place of peace, and shared a beat he made on Fruity Loops. Golden State fans hope he doesnt have too much free time on his hands to make music as they pursue a third straight win against Portland in the opening round of the Western Conference playoffs.
