Kevin Durant’s plan was to watch practice Tuesday and play against the Magic. Instead, he decided two more days rest would allow him to play this weekend in New York and Philadelphia.

"Most definitely,” Durant said. "Another day’s rest should definitely get me back for the next game.”

Durant suffered a sprained ankle Monday, landing on a player’s foot while grabbing a rebound in the second quarter of a loss at Indiana. He played through the injury to score a season-high 37 points.

"I played off adrenaline,” Durant said. "But once I sat on the bench and got in the locker room, it would be kind of stiff when I got back up.”

NEW LOOK

Center Robert Swift cut his hair Tuesday. The Thunder’s 7-foot center, who has played well in three games, is now sporting a trimmed down, gel-enhanced Mohawk. He said it’s only the second time in three years he’s cut his hair. Still, Swift looks vastly different than when he and Orlando center Dwight Howard played in the Ford Center in the 2004 McDonald’s All-America game.

"He definitely looks a little different now,” Howard said, smiling. "He didn’t have any tattoos when we were here. But he’s a great guy. I’m glad to see him back healthy.
