Kevin Durant twists ankle during pregame warmups, out vs. OKC

Kevin Durant twists ankle during pregame warmups, Thunder vs. Suns, 3/8/2023
Phoenix Suns superstar Kevin Durant was scratched from Wednesday night's game against Oklahoma City after twisting his ankle during pregame warmups.

KD was preparing for his home debut with the Suns after last month's blockbuster trade from the Brooklyn Nets. He went in for a layup and stepped awkwardly as he was putting up the shot.

Durant was able to brace himself as he fell to the floor, and he got up afterwards. However, he clearly was not going to be 100% by the start of the game, and the Suns were not willing to take any chances.

That's a real tough break for Suns fans, who were looking forward to seeing KD drop one of his killer crossovers against the Thunder. Unfortunately, they will have to wait a bit longer to see him play at home.
