OAKLAND, CALIF.—Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant will be out indefinitely after he sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and bruised a bone in his leg during a game in Washington.
The team said Wednesday that its medical staff hasn’t ruled him out to return before the end of the regular season.
The All-Star forward hyperextended his knee early in the Warriors’ 112-108 loss to the Wizards on Tuesday night and later underwent an MRI, which revealed a Grade 2, or moderate, sprain in the knee and a bruised tibia.
Durant leads the Warriors in scoring and rebounding with 25.3 points and 8.2 boards in his first season with Golden State. At 50-10, the Warriors have the NBA’s best record.
