Injured Golden State Warriors superstar Kevin Durant has confirmed what most suspected concerning his injury.

Posting a photo to Instagram from his hospital bed, Durant confirmed that he had successful surgery for a ruptured Achilles tendon, suffered in the second quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

He seemed upbeat in his statement:

What’s good everybody I wanted to update you all: I did rupture my Achilles. Surgery was today and it was a success, EASY MONEY

My road back starts now! I got my family and my loved ones by my side and we truly appreciate all the messages and support people have sent our way.

Like I said Monday, I’m hurting deeply, but I’m OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that’s what I do. I wanted to help my teammates on our quest for the three peat.

Its just the way things go in this game and I’m proud that I gave it all I physically could, and I’m proud my brothers got the W.

It’s going to be a journey but I’m built for this. I’m a hooper.

I know my brothers can get this Game 6, and I will be cheering with dub nation while they do it.

A ruptured Achilles is an extremely serious injury for a basketball player. The injury has kept other players out of game action for close to a calendar year, with many of them unable to ever return to pre-injury form.

The Warriors will try to rally around their fallen star in Game 6 in Oakland, as the Toronto Raptors search for one more win to capture their first-ever NBA championship.
