    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Sure, it's actually pretty likely. Strains and sprains of muscles are often minor tears. Not overly serious ones but, while it's not always true, strains/sprains are commonly a type of tear.

    I tore my calf muscle when I was 25, took its
    a few months to heal, about 6 months total to do anything on it. The fact he was walking on it, makes me think it wasnt a full tear (if it was torn).

    I think it's partially torn.

    You may be right. I heard Stephan A Smith say earlier that he was told that KD will eventually play in the finals, but we’ll see.

    Doesn't look good for Durant. Hope he didn't do to much damage to himself tonight.

    Definitely looks like an Achilles.

    Renowned former San Diego Chargers team doctor David J. Chao tweeted about Durant, "KD clearly grabbing at Achilles. Not saying complete tear but that is too low to be called calf. Bad news, his finals are done even if there is a game 7. Good news, should not affect his free agency."

    Warriors will confirm tommorow that Durant's Achilles is fully torn.

    How does this NOT affect his free agency. I’d think twice about signing him.

    No team in their right mind can max him now and throw away 35+M for the first year+the unknown after his return. And he has to take that player option.

    I understand it's the thing we do on forums like this.
    But right now I am a bit more reflective about what he put on the line right there. Also Durant has already left a bunch on the table just to play with the warriors. He has $35 million a year in endorsements.
    He has made $165 million in his career.

    It's just my opinion but i highly doubt he is worried about money right about now.

    Now his agent might be a different story.

    He has a player option for one year with the Warriors. There is no doubt he exercises that now. Re-hab on the Warriors dime.
