Kevin Durant missed the Golden State Warriors’ win over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday with an ankle sprain. Up until now, the former Thunder forward was listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game in Oklahoma City.
That’s no longer the case. Durant is officially listed as probable and will likely suit up against his former team in what will be his second game back in Oklahoma City since signing with the Warriors in July of 2016.
The Warriors say Kevin Durant (left ankle sprain) is probable for tonight's game at Oklahoma City.

Durant just recently spoke up about returning to a city he called home for eight seasons. Sure he’s expecting the boo birds to be out in full force. But Durant doesn’t expect it to impact him in any way (more on that here).
The defending champs head into Wednesday’s game with a 13-4 mark. Meanwhile, Oklahoma City sits at 7-9 on the season and has lost six of its past nine games. It should be a festive environment on this Thanksgiving eve.
