Kevin Durant is OUT of tonight’s Suns game against the Thunder after SLIPPING on court during pregame warm-ups… leaving Phoenix fans sweating over fitness of their new star
Phoenix Suns superstar forward Kevin Durant has been ruled out for tonight’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder after injuring his left ankle after slipping on the court during pre-game warmups.
Durant has played three games for the Suns since he was traded from the Brooklyn Nets just before the NBA trade deadline.
Throughout his three games he has averaged 29.5 points per game, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.7 assist.
Durant was diagnosed with ‘left ankle soreness’ according to an announcement made by the Suns.
Veteran swingman Torrey Craig was inserted into the lineup in his place

Phoenix has won all three of their games since adding Durant to the roster as the combination of him and superstar Devin Booker has proved to be too difficult of a combination for opposing defenses to stop.
Booker has scored 35 or more points in all three games since Durant’s addition to the lineup. His average for the season has been 27.2 points so it shows just how much he has benefited from Durant’s presence.
