Hoping for a speedy recovery. Likely going to miss the majority or all of next season though... sucks.

I don't get the whole prayers up thing. He isn't going to die. that being said I hope he is able to recover from this and play at a high level. It would be nice if someone can come back from this injury and still resemble the player they were before.

Dominique Wilkins ruptured his Achilles and then averaged 30 the next year.

But sadly, he's the only NBA player who didn't become a shell before receiving that nasty Achilles injury.

Gametime decision.

Warriors don't win game 5 without his huge boost at the beginning. If they come back and win it, that trophy will have KDs blood all over it
Lauri Markkanen is making me eat crow...... And I'm loving every bite of it

Kerr said he won't be 100 percent, but team doctors gave him the go ahead to play.

To be fair, that game was an exhibition more along the lines of Magic Johnson in the 92' All-Star game.
Brian Geltzeiler: You see Mark Jackson getting a head coaching job as early as next year?

Adrian Wojnarowski: Not if people make calls on him. Not if an organization is doing their homework and knows all the things he brings with him.
