Durant said he iced his ankle â€œthree or four timesâ€ Thursday night and twice Friday morning.
â€œIâ€™m moving in the right direction,â€ Durant said. â€œI got to be smart about it. I donâ€™t want to come in and play through pain and make it worse. Of course I want to play, but Iâ€™ve got to listen to the training staff and do whatâ€™s best for my body.â€
