Kevin Durant shared a photo from his hospital bed where he is recovering after undergoing surgery on his right Achilles heel.

The NBA star shared a photo from his hospital bed on Wednesday and declared, "I DID rupture my Achilles. Surgery was today and it was a success, EASY MONEY."

KD added that, "I'm hurting deeply, but I'm OK. Basketball is my biggest love and I wanted to be out there that night because that's what I do. I wanted to help my teammates on our quest for the three peat."

It isn't clear if his leg was hurt or his feelings.

Durant was the subject of ridicule and scorn after he went down 2 minutes into the 2nd quarter during Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday.

Fans immediately accused the Warriors star of flopping and faking his injury to close out the chapter on the Warriors and collect a max contract with another NBA team.

After hobbling out of the arena on crutches, Durant took to Instagram to say he was "hurting deep in the soul". But some social media users had their doubts that he was really injured at all.

The ridicule got so bad, that his mother Wanda Durant was forced to defend her son from the Internet trolls.

"For ALL of you who question my son as a Man, question his Heart, question his Integrity and question his LOVE for the game of basketball, you DON'T know him. He has a heart of a true Warrior! This too shall pass. God Bless you ALL."

Game 6 of the NBA Finals is tonight, June 13, in Oakland, California.

  • hi-liter

    Yeah, stupid mofo’s......I see if he was shooting air balls and not making shots in that game, he was on fire, had scored 11 points while he was in the game, so why would he fake?

  • Rayne

    If somebody said something about me on social media my momma would’ve asked for directions to Instagram to go up there and visit whoever said something about her baby. Lmfao

  • EMILY POST

    Kevin Durant has been one of my favorite players for years. I hope he gets well soon.
    Now a lot of media agencies like espn have been so annoying with their coverage you would expect better from a actual news organization dedicated to sports... they speculate more than MTO... a entire channel dedicated to giving opinions about sports... the Cable news is so awful.
    Brian Gumball Real sports is the best.

  • CardiB’sAbs

  • DroneRivers

    They're dumb as hell!

  • DroneRivers

    Go Warriors!!!!

  • Simone

    Good Lord! Everything is not for social media. Heal in private like a grown man. Stop looking for sympathy like a sick puppy.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I agree. He has some real weirdo energy and that Norman Bates type of mama doesn’t help his case.

  • Parent

    I swear for God, my daughter bet not ever post a pic of me in a hospital bed on social media. There's things you share and don't share.

  • Topic Influencer

    First he lyin on his injury...then he post a pic of him in the hospital bed and folks got something to say about that shit too. Folks cannot win period out here in such a damn it judgemental world of social media

    Heal well KD. See ya 2019-2020 mid season bro

  • dontgetblocked

    Now this is some bish shyt! I had surgery on my foot and my Achilles heel at the same time. The foot was a mother. The Achilles heel was a small incision AND they sent my azz home after the surgery. How he is sitting up in a hospital bed? He's a joke!

  • Alextra Ballard

    I know it’s to late for regrets but I am still wondering is the coach second guessin himself by allowing KD tew play in game 5. This is a very serious injury. I hate this

  • PrettyMeka08

    Stop with the hospital pics, it’s such an attention seeking tactic.

  • PrettyMeka08

    Well, he is an NBA superstar with a few million dollars in his account. Their going to coddle that patient.

  • PrettyMeka08

    Just say NO to hospital pics. Stop with attention seeking! ??

  • Allihave2say

    This one was for proof.

  • PrettyMeka08

    The sports world saw him go down. The ignorant classless fans in Toronto even took joy in his leg injury. #WeBelieveYouKev

  • Blak

    "It isn't clear if his leg was hurt or his feelings." Damn Sandra you are sure on a role with your shade today!!!

  • Blak

    No this was for the 'gram!!

  • Dowoop

    He needs to sit out the entire 19-20 season and heal and rest. Raptors is my team but wouldn't want to see his career end due to injury.

  • Grace Turner

    He let the organization and team gas him and almost risked his career trying to play hero as if they never won a championship before?! Smh

  • MsPam

    I don’t know who’s the corniest him or Drake. ?????

  • MsPam

    He will, don’t really have a choice.

  • Kimberly King

    KD is cute to me and I can't put a finger on why.

  • SpiceGirl

    I thought "THEY" said he faked it! <----insert eye roll
    Speedy recovery KD

  • MMM

    Does this guy have a girlfriend?

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I always wonder that... If he do have a girlfriend, it is good that he keep his personal business secret!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I think he is an attractive young man too!

  • MMM

    No man! His mother is so all over him, I don't think there's room for another woman.

  • BogartKing

    Looks like a big Ol fuckin queer posin for instagram as soon as he gets out back to them faggety ass Capri's and pennyloafers

  • onelove

    he looks sad
