MEMPHIS — Kevin Durant will be in the Thunder lineup tonight at Memphis after being listed as questionable with a sore left wrist, an injury that stems from a hard fall in Saturday's game against Milwaukee.

Durant sat out of practice Monday but said at his team's shootaround Tuesday morning that there was never a doubt he would play against the Grizzlies.

"I'm good," Durant said. "I just took a little tumble. Everybody's done that before. So I'm good."

Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Durant felt much better Tuesday morning and participated in a portion of the shootaround.

"He's fine today," Brooks said. "He woke up feeling much better than yesterday and a couple of days ago."
