In the second quarter of last night’s OKC at Golden State game, Kevin Durant landed on an opponent’s foot and turned his ankle. He did not return to the game. Given his recent foot injury, fans feared the worst but x-rays after the game were negative.
Durant scored a season-high 30 points on 10-for-13 shooting in a spectacular first half that ended with him stepping on Marreese Speights’ foot. Durant said he had a mild ankle sprain and X-rays were negative.
The reigning NBA MVP said he hopes to play at the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night but will see how he feels.
“I wanted go back out there, but we wanted to be cautious,” Durant said.
