March 12 (Reuters) - Golden State star forward Kevin Durant left late in the Warriors' loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday night with an apparent right ankle injury, but initial reports were that it doesn't appear to be serious.
About midway through the fourth quarter, with the scored tied at 91-91, Durant appeared to land on a Suns defender's foot after putting up a shot.
Citing a tweet from the San Jose Mercury News, the Sporting News reported that Warriors coach Steve Kerr didn't think it was a major injury, adding that he didn't know whether Durant would need an MRI.
Durant finished with 25 points on 9 of 17 shooting. He began the night averaging 27.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 5.7 assists this season.
