Kevin Durant worked so hard to get back into the Golden State Warriors' lineup.
But after playing 11 minutes and 57 seconds in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors, Durant re-injured his lower right leg Monday night, and will undergo an MRI on Tuesday.
The Warriors didn't specifically say that Durant hurt his calf again, but based on video replays, it appears the muscle popped.

Former NFL team doctor David Chao had a more grim outlook.
49ers cornerback Richard Sherman also believed Durant suffered an Achilles injury.
Durant was seen leaving Scotiabank Arena on crutches and with a boot on his right foot.

Despite the injury, Durant was effective during his time on the court, as he finished with 11 points on 3-of-5 shooting, including 3 of 3 from deep.
Oh no! Steph Curry got in a sparring match.
Just kidding. But the Warriors superstar did have a fake fight with legendary boxer Canelo Álvarez as the two participated in the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament in Lake Tahoe while waiting for a practice round.
Canelo made Curry look the least athletic he probably has ever looked -- and that’s saying something.
Canelo swiped from the left side at Steph and he couldn’t believe it.
“You’re supposed to move, dude,” somebody shouted as Steph laughed.
Canelo has just one loss across his career with 53 wins in 56 fights -- 36 of those wins were by knockout. That’s probably why he’s dubbed the world’s best active boxer by BoxRec.

Glad it’s Steph and not me.
Don’t worry, nobody was hurt in the making of this Instagram story.
The Warriors need to bolster their frontcourt this offseason.
They could do just that through the NBA draft, free agency or both.
Last week, Grant Liffmann listed some possible "under-the-radar" free-agents the front office could target. And Monte Poole, Kerith Burke, Liffmann and yours truly discussed those options this week on the latest "Warriors Roundtable."
It's very possible that general manager Bob Myers and his staff make it a priority to sign a player (or two) who is a threat from deep.
The plan was for Kevon Looney to add the 3-point shot to his game last year, but injuries derailed his season.
Marquese Chriss averaged 2.7 3-point attempts per game over his first two NBA seasons with the Phoenix Suns, but just shot 39 3s over 59 games with the Dubs in 2019-20 (he made eight).

And Draymond Green -- who might end up playing more center in 2020-21 -- has not shot the ball consistently well from beyond the arc the last four regular seasons.
To see which big men the Warriors might be interested in adding this October, watch the full conversation above.
