KD scores 11 before re-injuring leg (0:48)

Kevin Durant goes 3-for-5 with 11 points in his return, but has to exit early in the second quarter after he appears to aggravate his right leg. (0:48)

After missing the past nine games with a strained right calf, Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant returned to action, starting Game 5 of the NBA Finals. However, Durant's return was cut short when he reinjured his calf early in the second quarter.

The Warriors led Toronto 39-34 with 9 minutes, 46 seconds left in the first half at the time of the injury. Durant scored 11 points in the first quarter and made all three of his 3-pointer attempts.

The Toronto Raptors crowd chanted "KD, KD" as Durant was helped back to the locker room, and Durant's fellow pro players sent their well-wishes to the Warriors star on Twitter.
