Kevin Durant out with ankle strain vs. Lakers

Kevin Durant missed the second half of Thursday’s game against Golden State and he’ll be out tonight against the Lakers.

The Oklahoman and others reported Durant has a mild right ankle sprain and he is day-to-day. X-Rays taken last night at Golden State were negative. Durant scored 30 points in the first half.

The Thunder had won seven of eight games this season that Durant had played in, coming into last night. Durant will miss his 18th game this season.

Perry Jones will likely start in Durant’s place.
