game against Phoenix inside Oklahoma City Arena.

Durant sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of Wednesday night's home victory against Indiana and remained in the starting lineup Friday night, finishing with 29 points, eight rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes in a victory at Atlanta.

"Everything's good," Brooks said of Durant. "He came in (Saturday) on his day off, got in some shots. He's fine."

Newly acquired guard Nate Robinson, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last Friday, is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Robinson was receiving treatment and did not participate in Sunday's shoot-around. He was later seen on crutches, shouting encouragement to Perkins and then shooting free throws while sitting on a chair.
