Kevin Durant Reacts To $25K Fine For Cursing Out Heckler

Diallo came down heavily on his ankle in their 123-95 win against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena in Oakland on Wednesday night.

Diallo went up for a rebound with Warriors forward Jonas Jerebko in front of the rim midway through the fourth quarter.

The 20-year-old could be seen writhing in pain as he crawled toward the baseline, where he stayed for several minutes while the medical staff attended to him.

Diallo exited the locker room with a boot on his left foot and using crutches, but he was in good spirits after getting what was pretty surprising news considering how scary the play looked.

Diallo landed awkwardly on his left leg and had to be carried from the floor on a stretcher. He will travel back to Oklahoma City with the team and be further evaluated more on Thursday, and are calling it an ankle sprain.

He had just turned in one of the worst games of his short Thunder tenure after recording a season-low six points on 3-of-17 shooting from the field as the Thunder lost to the Kings.

Russell Westbrook recorded a triple-double, Steven Adams and Jerami Grant had double-doubles, and Paul George poured in 25 points as the Thunder used balance to overcome a two-man show by Golden State's Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson.

Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson each led the Warriors with 27 points apiece as Golden State has now lost four straight games for the first time since February 26 to March 2, 2013.

Durant won his first two National Basketball Association titles with the Warriors in the past two seasons, combining with fellow stars Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson to form a powerful lineup.
