On Tuesday during a road game against the Washington Wizards, Golden State Warriors center Zaza Pachulia accidentally fell on forward Kevin Durant that caused the superstar swingman visible pain in his left leg.

Things looked bleak for Durant and the Warriors, however, on Wednesday morning the team released a statement saying Durant suffered a sprained MCL as well as a bone bruise in his left leg. The news turned out to be good, considering many thought the injury looked season-ending.

The team statement said Durant would be out at least four weeks at which point he will be reevaluated. According to ESPN reporter Marc Stein, he believes Durant will miss up to six weeks and said the superstar, in his first year with the team, could return for the start of the playoffs.

The play happened in the first quarter of a 112-108 loss to the Wizards. During a scramble for a loose ball, Wizards center Marcin Gortat fouled Pachulia who fell into Durant. He managed to not get trapped under Pachulia and limped on his left leg for two possessions before he was taken out during a timeout.

His teammates, including outspoken forward Draymond Green, took to social media to express their sympathy for Durant.

“I’m hurt to see my guy @KDTrey5 go down, but it’s always strength in numbers. Get well soon K!!! #DubNation.”
