Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (C) walks off the court with an injury after a play against the Houston Rockets
Golden State Warriors fans will be holding their breath after Kevin Durant picked up a right calf strain during their 104-99 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday evening.

The 30-year-old was forced from the court in the third quarter at Oracle Arena while running back to defend, after landing a mid-range jumper take took his tally up to 22 points for the night.

It is unclear for how long the injury will rule Durant out for and if it will end his season. He is set to undergo a MRI exam on Thursday, but no matter the results, Steve Kerr could be forced to rest the two-time NBA Finals MVP in game 6 this weekend.

Klay Thompson and Steph Curry carried the Warriors to victory in Durant's absence, as they took a 3-2 lead in the seven-game-series

Durant has been heavily linked with a move to the New York Knicks come the end of the season, and Warriors fans will be hoping that wasn't the last they see of the Small forward in their colours.
