Kevin Durant Re-injures Right Leg in NBA Finals Game 5; MRI on Tuesday

Kevin Durant's return to the Golden State Warriors lineup lasted just over 14 minutes.

With 9:50 remaining in the second quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Durant re-injured his lower right leg when he tried to dribble around Raptors big man Serge Ibaka.

Durant immediately was helped to the locker room. As he was leaving the court, Durant yelled an expletive.

The Warriors announced that Durant indeed suffered a lower right leg injury. He will get an MRI on Tuesday.

Durant was playing in his first game since May 8 when he strained his right calf in Game 5 of the Warriors' second-round series against the Houston Rockets.

Raptors fans, who have been applauded by most for how passionate they've been throughout the NBA Finals, appeared to cheer the Durant injury.

The two-time NBA Finals MVP was off to a hot start in his return Monday night, scoring 11 points in 12 minutes of action
