Kevin Durant Questionable for Warriors Game Vs. Thunder on Saturday

HOUSTON - Kevin Durant is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Steve Kerr announced Friday afternoon. 

Durant, who injured his ankle Sunday in a loss against the Suns, went through a full practice Friday at the University of Houston and will use Saturday's shootaround and pregame to determine whether he'll play against the Thunder. 

Any time KD plays in Oklahoma City, the stakes of the game get a little higher. Durant, of course, played for the Thunder franchise for nine seasons before leaving for the Warriors in the summer of 2016. Durant's first visit back to Chesapeake Energy Arena in 2017 was quite emotional, but the scene has calmed down since. 

The Warriors, meanwhile, impressively beat the Rockets without Durant on Wednesday. Andre Iguodala started in Durant's place vs. Houston, and it appears likely he would start again if KD isn't healthy enough to play Saturday.

Prior to injuring his ankle, Durant was averaging 27.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists in 65 games this season.
