There was doubt as to whether or not Kevin Durant would be suiting up tonight when the Oklahoma City Thunder travel to play the Memphis Grizzlies.
Durant fell on his left wrist in the Thunder’s last game vs. the Milwaukee Bucks and Durant missed practice yesterday because the wrist was sore.
It is official now that Durant will be in the lineup tonight in Memphis.
Kevin Durant will play tonight at Memphis after being questionable with a sore left wrist.

Mayberry went on to report Durant saying that there was never any doubt that he would play and that he just took a tumble and everyone has done that before.
The Thunder really would have been in trouble without KD, even against a lowly Memphis squad.
Durant and Russell Westbrook have never both missed a Thunder game since Westbrook entered the league.
It’s a good thing we aren’t going to find out what that would look like because I doubt it would be pretty.
