Oklahoma City Thunder superstar foward Kevin Durant appeared to injure his right shooting wrist in the third quarter of Monday night's Game 4 against the Houston Rockets on Monday night, but immediately returned to action after a brief scare.
Durant dove for a ball near the scorer's table and landed awkwardly on his wrist, immediately grabbing it while in obvious discomfort. He went to the sidelines during a stoppage of play, but was able to return to the floor after getting some attention from team trainers.
He is in the middle of a strong performance and will be instrumental in any attempt for the Thunder to eliminate the Rockets via a sweep. To this point, he has 26 points on 8-of-11 shooting, adding five rebounds and three assists. His five turnovers have contributed to Houston's attempt at a comeback.
Any long-term injury to Durant would be a devastating blow to the already-shorthanded Thunder, who are missing the explosive point guard Russell Westbrook following a knee injury that could potentially end his season.
