Kevin Durant leaves game at half with strained hamstring

1 Comment

Kevin Durant was greeted by boos but still put up a double-double in the first half in his return to his hometown of Washington D.C., 14 points and 10 assists. But that was it.

Durant left the game at halftime, something reported by Royce Young of ESPN.

The concern is that hamstring injuries can linger. Durant could miss several games waiting for that to heal, but the severity of the strain is not yet known.

Kyle Singler started for Durant in the second half. Missing Durant didn’t matter because Russell Westbrook dropped a triple-double in three quarters as the Thunder led by 26 points and had put 97 points in the first three frames.
