"It was sad", said Woods, during his U.S. Open pre-tournament media conference. "I just hope that ugliness doesn't show itself again as we go forward in this series".

Despite murmurs that Kevin Durant was angling to leave the Golden State Warriors as a free agent this summer, the team reportedly meant to offer the two-time Finals MVP a long-term extension while allowing him to leave the team at any point during the contract, a source told The Athletic's Frank Isola.

He added: "You understand that this is about an individual, a human being and not 'oh shoot, he's out, he's hurt, we won the championship.' That's probably their initial thought and you hate to see that when a guy is going through pain like that".

The sight of Durant on the floor clutching at his leg brought back all too painful memories for Woods who battled career threatening back issues until undergoing surgery just over two years ago.

"I think opting in is the last resort", Wojnarowski said. "I've had it to my own back. You just know. And I've been there".

The Raptors bench were among those shocked by the injury, and after the crowd's initial excitement when Durant went down, a few members of the team gestured for fans to quiet down out of respect. It's an bad feeling.

The team management has decided that Mr Dhawan will continue to be in England and his progress will be monitored. Team India opening batsman Mr Shikhar Dhawan is presently under the observation of the BCCI medical team.

The 15-time major victor injured his left Achilles during the 2011 Masters and missed three months of action. Along with DeMarcus Cousins, who recovered from a torn left Achilles and a torn left quad in the playoffs, Durant can learn plenty from Sherman, who recovered and signed a 3-year, $27.15 million contract with the 49ers in 2018.

"That's what people don't see, is all those long hours that really do suck", he said.

"Why do we do it?"

"Well, sometimes things go awry".
