Durant to sit Wed. vs. Rockets with ankle sprain

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant will sit out Wednesday’s game against the Houston Rockets because of a sprained right ankle.

Durant left Sunday’s 115-111 loss to the Phoenix Suns in the fourth quarter after turning his ankle and did not return.

Despite some initial concern inside Oracle Arena, Warriors coach Steve Kerr did not sound concerned about the injury after the game.

“I think he’s going to be all right,” Kerr said after the game. “He had an ankle contusion, but I don’t think it’s bad. I talked to him briefly. He didn’t seem to think it was too bad.”

The play came with 6 minutes, 34 seconds left in regulation when Durant jumped up to make a pass and came down on Suns center Deandre Ayton‘s foot.

Durant stayed down for a moment before walking off the floor and going directly back to the locker room with members of the Warriors training staff and general manager Bob Myers.

Wednesday’s game in Houston marks the start of a four-game road trip for Golden State.
