Kevin Durant day-to-day with right ankle contusion

OAKLAND — Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant is day-to-day with a right ankle contusion suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Phoenix Suns, head coach Steve Kerr said on Monday, leaving his status for Wednesday night’s NBA Western Conference Finals rematch against the Houston Rockets up in the air.

With 6:34 left in Sunday’s loss to the Phoenix Suns, Durant came down awkwardly on the foot of DeAndre Ayton after leaping to make a pass, turning his right ankle. He stayed on the floor for some time before getting up and walking to the locker room with trainer Rick Celebrini.

Durant scored 25 points in 30 minutes on 9-of-17 shooting, with two rebounds, three assists and two steals before leaving.

“I think he’s going to be alright,” 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.”NBA
