When Durant left, the game was knotted up at 91-91.
After he left, the Warriors lost the game to the Phoenix Suns, who were playing the second game of a back-to-back and, of course, are the worst team in the Association.
Thankfully, there was some silver lining, as Steve Kerr told reporters after the game that Durant’s injury doesn’t appear to be serious, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
Steve Kerr said the Kevin Durant ankle injury doesn't appear to be serious. Talked to him postgame. Sounds minor.
