After Warriors’ Kevin Durant suffered an apparent right Achilles injury in Game 5, the Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard reflects on Durant’s situation, per CBS Sports:

“It’s devastating. You work so hard to get to this point, these are the last games, you see him try to come out and push himself, but obviously he tried to do a move, and I feel bad for him. I’ve been in that situation before. I hope he has a speedy recovery and just gets healthy, and I hope that he’s going to be OK mentally, just throughout the whole rehab process, because, like I said before, we work so hard to either play in the Finals or just play in the NBA, and when you’re not playing, it’s hard to wrap your mental around it. But I’m pretty sure he’s goin to attack each day and get better and come back strong.”
