Kevin Durant takes a nasty fall against the Heat (VIDEO)

Feb 14, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

Late in the first quarter of Thursday’s contest between the Heat and the Thunder, Kevin Durant leaned back awkwardly in midair going for a rebound, and came crashing hard to the floor, without being able to  do anything to break the fall.

Durant fell directly on the left side of his body, with it appearing as though his hip took the majority of the contact.

After being examined by the team’s medical staff, Durant decided he was good to go and stayed in the game, returning to action on the very next play.

We’ll see how it feels as the game goes on and then afterward and in the days to come, but even if he ends up coming away completely unscathed, it was a scary moment for one of the league’s best players.

    That one looked painful. I’m surprised he didn’t break something in his shoulder. No foul, just an awkward play.

      I thought they were going to call flopping, no?

    For 2 years, every time Lebron missed a shot/turned the ball over, there was Bill Sommons tweeting about it, writing columns about how Lebron/Miami was a failure, and generally leading the anti-Lebron/Miami tidal wave.

    Tonight. OKC/Miami. LeBron/Durant. National TV. And what do we get from Simmons? Nothing. Silence. Nada.

    Love the Sports Guy. But you owe us what we want to hear..

      The silence is beautiful… i hope he stays mute on the subject… speak volumes to how worng he knows he was. He was coat tail riding.

    This is why position and boxing out matters, kids. I hope he’s OK, but it didn’t sound good at all.

    It was pretty clear that it was a very bad fall, and it was also clear that it was just that, a very bad fall. Not a result of malicious play by a member of the Heat… but what was fake tough guy Perkins barking about… he is such a clown… do something, instead he barks… but has no bite.
