Kevin Durant (ankle) questionable tomorrow; Golden State Warriors reunite with legends

Despite the rain of boos from disapproving Thunder fans during Durant's visits to Chesapeake Energy Arena last season and the endless swarm of acerbic comments he's been getting through social media on a constant basis, you could still say that there are plenty of Thunder supporters who still love Durant.

There are questions about whether Durant will play during the first matchup in the midwest between the two teams this season - Golden State travels to Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, and Durant is listed as questionable with an ankle injury. If he is available Wednesday, Durant would play in Oklahoma City against his former team for just the second time since he signed with Golden State in July 2016.

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant looks on during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017, in Philadelphia.

The Thunder added not only stars Paul George and Carmelo Anthony but role players Raymond Felton and Patrick Patterson as well.

"I just try to block out all of the nonsense and all the BS and just got out there and play", Durant said. Still, the Warriors secured a 130-114 win over the Thunder with Durant posting a team-leading 34 points while shooting 12-of-21 from the field and 3-of-6 from 3-point range. "It's really about us".
