Kevin Durant: Golden State Warriors forward to miss game against Brooklyn Nets

"It's just a regular game for me now", he said.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant will miss Sunday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets with a sprained left ankle, the team announced.

"It's just a regular game for me now", Durant said Tuesday after the Warriors finished a practice in NY before traveling to Oklahoma City for the Wednesday game.

There are a number of Thunder fans that still love Durant despite the way which he departed the team, as you can see in the video further down by The Athletic's Anthony Slater as they're lining up to see and have their picture with the Warriors star as he and his teammates arrive in Oklahoma City. He put up 34 points and nine rebounds in a 130-114 Golden State win. "We'll see how it feels in the morning but right now, it feels good".

"We're a year removed from the first one, so hopefully it'll be a little less hostile", Kerr said. "Just keep at basketball, and I'll be alright".

The Warriors travel to Oklahoma City to play the Thunder on Wednesday night.

One fan became so comfortable with Durant's chumminess that he dared ask the former league MVP to retire as a Thunder.

Most everything has been a struggle early in the season, with the Thunder regularly building big leads before letting them slip away. As a team, the Thunder shot 42 percent from the field and 11 of 35 from the three-point line, but they still couldn't hold off the Pelicans after leading by as many as 19 points in the first quarter. Regardless of other teams, we know if we play the way we're supposed to play for 48 minutes, it's hard to beat us. With the win, Golden State improved to 13-4 on the season and 7-2 on the road.
