Warriors' Durant out indefinitely with knee injury
Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant has suffered a knee sprain and will be out indefinitely, the National Basketball Association said on Wednesday, dealing a blow to the team's bid for a third straight trip to the finals.
He was taken to a Washington area hospital where he underwent an MRI, which revealed Durant had suffered a Grade 2 medial collateral ligament (MCL) sprain and a tibial bone bruise.
The Warriors, who have the best record in the league at 50-10, said in a statement posted on the team's Twitter feed that Durant will be re-evaluated in four weeks and could play again before the end of the regular season.
He leads the team in scoring (25.8 points per game), rebounding (8.4 rpg) and blocks (1.7 bpg).
