Kevin Durant said there was never a doubt he would play Tuesday despite being listed as questionable for the Thunder's game against the Grizzlies a day earlier.
“I'm good,” Durant said. “I just took a little tumble. Everybody's done that before. So I'm good.”
Durant was dealing with a sore left wrist after a nasty fall Saturday against Milwaukee.
GASOL RETURNS FOR GRIZZLIES
Memphis center Marc Gasol rejoined the Grizzlies' lineup Tuesday after missing 23 straight games with a left MCL sprain.
Gasol had not played since sustaining the injury on Nov. 22 against San Antonio.
Prior to Tuesday, the reigning Defensive Player of the Year had appeared in only 13 games, averaging 16 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.7 blocked shots.
