Following the Warriors' 106-105 win in Game 5 on Monday night, Bob Myers, the club's GM/president of basketball ops, went to the podium to announce that Kevin Durant sustained an Achillies injury.

The full extent of the injury won't be known until Durant undergoes an MRI on Tuesday. Shortly after Myers spoke, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, with an assist from Adrian Wojnarowski, reported that the club fears the worst.

Myers, fighting back tears, addressed the injury at the impromptu press conference.

“I don’t believe there’s anyone to blame…if you have to, you can blame me."

Durant, meanwhile, who had already left the arena on crutches while wearing a walking boot, took to Instagram to share his feelings on the situation.
