Several notable players reached out to Kevin Durant via social media after the Warriors star went down in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Kevin Durant's resilient comeback from a calf injury that kept him out for a month was lauded by his peers -- and mourned when it was cut short less than three minutes into the second quarter of Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Durant suffered an Achilles injury, the team announced.
