Knowing all too well what it is like to be struck down by injury, Tiger Woods spared a thought for Kevin Durant on Tuesday, after watching the Golden State Warriors forward crumple to the floor during a game against the Toronto Raptors. "As athletes we've all been there, to that spot when you just know it, that something just went, and can't move, can't do much of anything".

While Kevin Durant didn't have the impeccable health record that Sherman did before suffering a likely torn right Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Durant prides himself on his durability, consistency and health, and had a solid health record for the majority of his career.

"You can see it on his face".

Woods, who spent almost two years out of golf as he battled a long-running back problem, said Durant's immediate reaction on court spoke volumes.

"I've been there. I've had it to my own Achilles", said Woods. "I've had it to my own back. You just know. And I've been there". And no one can help you.

Woods, who suffered an Achilles injury in 2011, said he could empathise with Durant, who nearly certainly now faces several months of rehab to regain fitness.

Golden State led 106-103 at the time. Also, they talk in depth about Durant's achilles diagnosis.

"If he popped it, then that's six to nine months of rehabbing", said Woods.

"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".
