June 12 (Reuters) - Four-times NBA leading scorer Kevin Durant had surgery on Wednesday for a ruptured Achilles tendon, the Golden State Warriors player announced on Instagram.

Durant said the surgery had been successful.

"My road back starts now," he wrote in a post accompanied by a picture of him in a hospital bed.

"I'm hurting deeply but I'm OK."

Durant's long-awaited return for the NBA Finals lasted barely one quarter, before he suffered the injury in game five against the Toronto Raptors on Monday.

The two-times NBA Finals most valuable player (MVP) had missed the previous games of the series with a calf injury.

The Raptors lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
