Kevin Durant likes Instagram comment about Draymond Green getting traded

Basketball fans have flooded social media with an outpouring of support for Oklahoma's Hamidou Diallo after the rookie suffered a horrific injury in the NBA.

Golden State Warriors forward Jonas Jerebko landed awkwardly on Diallo's legs after the Thunder guard had jumped for a rebound in transition.

The Warriors played without Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Alfonzo McKinnie as each player is dealing with various injuries and the team did not look in sync for much of the matchup as a result. He will travel back to Oklahoma City with the team and be further evaluated more on Thursday, and are calling it an ankle sprain.

League sources quoted by The Athletic and ESPN indicated the Warriors' medical staff ruled out any severe lower body injuries and he left the locker room on crutches and wearing a protective boot on his ankle. Paul George, who looked extremely anxious when Diallo was stretchered off the court, also indicated the injury was likely to be a relatively routine ankle sprain.

Russell Westbrook's triple-double led the Thunder to a 123-95 win over Golden State, which lost its fourth straight.

Adams had 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Grant put up 14 points and 11 rebounds, helping the Thunder win for an 11th time in their past 13 games after an 0-4 start.

The incident in question occurred with 1:01 remaining in the first quarter of the Warriors' 112-109 loss to the Mavericks on Saturday night, when Durant approached the heckler seated on the baseline and told them point blank, "Watch the fucking game and shut the fuck up".

Instead, Durant liked an Instagram comment that read, "Green getting traded if Cousins healthy just the rumor going around".
