Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says “it’s doubtful” superstar small forward Kevin Durant plays on Saturday against his old team, the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Durant is dealing with a right ankle contusion which he suffered last weekend at home against the lowly Phoenix Suns.

KD didn’t play on Wednesday versus the Houston Rockets. The Warriors won by a final score of 106-104.

After the Thunder game, the Warriors will face the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves on the road before they head back home.

In 65 games this season for the Dubs, Kevin Durant is averaging 27.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 5.7 assists per contest. The 10-time All-Star and two-time Finals MVP is shooting 51.3 percent from the field, 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 88.1 percent from the free-throw line.

Durant has 14 double-doubles and two triple-doubles on the season. The Warriors are listing him as questionable to play against the Thunder, but since Kerr is saying he’s doubtful, it looks like we won’t get to see KD back in OKC.

Golden State has the luxury of being able to play if safe with Durant. The Warriors have four other All-Stars on the team in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, DeMarcus Cousins and Draymond Green.

The Dubs are 46-21 on the season, good for first place in the West.
