DALLAS (AP) Kevin Durant is out again for Oklahoma City with a sprained right ankle, and Dallas center Tyson Chandler is a late scratch due to back spasms.

Durant, who was sidelined the first 17 games of the season with a broken right foot, will miss his sixth straight game because of his latest injury.

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said Chandler's condition wasn't serious. After playing the Thunder on Sunday night, Dallas is at home again Tuesday night against Washington.

The 32-year-old Chandler has started all 31 games since returning to the Mavericks in an offseason trade with New York. He is third in the league at 11.9 rebounds per game, and also third in shooting at 68 percent.
