In the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 101-85 win over the Milwaukee Bucks at home Saturday night, Kevin Durant took a spill and injured his wrist.
Durant continued to play in the game, scoring 33 points, but his status for the next Thunder game is up in the air.
Kevin Durant did not practice today. Scott Brooks says "we'll see tomorrow" on whether Durant will be available against Memphis.

No Durant would obviously be terrible for the Thunder. I don’t know if there is a team in the NBA I’d pick the Thunder to beat without Durant and Westbrook.
At this point in the season when it comes to injuries, you always want to play it on the safe side. But missing practice makes it seem like this injury is at least kind of serious.
My bet is that Durant plays. He will definitely give it a go if he can. With Westbrook out, I think Durant will be even more motivated to make sure he suits up.
Durant has played in every game this season. He played in 81 last year, all 66 the season before and 78 the year before that.
