Kevin Durant takes a nasty fall against the Heat (VIDEO)

Late in the first quarter of Thursday’s contest between the Heat and the Thunder, Kevin Durant leaned back awkwardly in midair going for a rebound, and came crashing hard to the floor, without being able to  do anything to break the fall.

Durant fell directly on the left side of his body, with it appearing as though his hip took the majority of the contact.

After being examined by the team’s medical staff, Durant decided he was good to go and stayed in the game, returning to action on the very next play.

We’ll see how it feels as the game goes on and then afterward and in the days to come, but even if he ends up coming away completely unscathed, it was a scary moment for one of the league’s best players.
