Durant sat on the team bench during Friday's shoot-around session, bundled up in sweat pants and a sweat shirt.
Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Durant's status remains day-to-day since he suffered the injury in the fourth quarter against New Orleans last Monday. "It's improved a lot, every day," Brooks said.
The Thunder will go with the same starting lineup as Wednesday night in a 123-120 triple-overtime victory at New Jersey with point guard Russell Westbrook, guard Thabo Sefolosha, small forward Jeff Green, center Nenad Krstic and Serge Ibaka at power forward.
"Durant is a great player, but other guys are going to step up," said forward/center Andrea Bargnani, the Raptors' leading scorer at 20.6. "They have a long team. Westbrook is averaging (29.0) points (in games without Durant). He is very athletic, he's strong, he can run, he can jump, he rebounds, too. He's on fire, so he's going to be tough to guard."
The Thunder is 3-0 without Durant and 8-2 with a make-shift starting lineup.
"That's good news, and it's because we've got good players," Brooks said. "Our players have all stepped up and they've played well when they're needed."
Toronto coach Jay Triano said the key to containing Westbrook is to mix in various defenses.
"You try to show him different things," Triano said. "Don't give one look continuously over the game â€“ it could be personnel-based, it could be themed-based. He's got great instincts, a great nose for the basketball, a great ability to get to the rim."
The Thunder's next game after tonight is at home against Golden State on Sunday.
"Kevin will get treatment (Saturday) and we'll re-address it on Sunday," Brooks said.
Wednesday night's contest against the Nets took three hours, 21 minutes to complete and had 19 lead changes and 13 ties.
"When you win a triple-overtime game, you tend to feel much better," Brooks said. "We're ready to go. (Fatigue) won't be an issue tonight."
