Thunder forward Kevin Durant will miss his third consecutive game with a sprained right ankle, according to Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman.

Durant sprained his right ankle on Thursday against the Warriors and is considered day-to-day. He sat out Friday's game against the Lakers and Monday's game against the Pelicans.

Durant missed the first 17 games of the season with a fracture in his right foot. The Thunder are 7-2 in games with Durant this season. They lost Thursday's game against Golden State and split against the Lakers and Pelicans.
