Myers said he “didn’t believe there’s anybody to blame” but “if you have to, blame me,” Myers told reporters after the Warriors’ 106-105 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Monday night in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
The setback comes as Durant, 30, was due to become a free agent, causing speculation that he wouldn’t return to the Warriors.
“Let me tell you something about Kevin Durant. Kevin Durant loves to play basketball. And the people that questioned whether he wanted to get back to this team are wrong,” Myers said. “He’s one of the most misunderstood people. He’s a good teammate. He’s a good person. It’s not fair.”
The extent of Durant’s injury is unclear, Myers said, adding that Durant is scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday.
Durant is widely seen as one of the top players in the lead, perhaps only behind Lebron James.
