Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters that the injury appeared to be minor.
“I think he’s going to be all right,” Kerr said, according to the Mercury News’ Mark Medina, later adding that he doesn’t expect Durant to have an MRI. “I don’t think it’s bad. I talked to him briefly. He didn’t think it was too bad.”
Durant finished with 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting, two rebounds, three assists, and a pair of steals in 30 minutes of action as the Warriors fell to 45-21 on the season. Throughout the 2018-19 season, he has put together averages of 27.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 5.7 assists while shooting 36.0 percent from beyond the arc.
