Although starting forward Jeff Green remains listed as “day-to-day” with a sprained left ankle, Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Wednesday he does not fear the injury is more severe than originally diagnosed.

Green first sprained the ankle on Nov. 6 and then re-injured it when he returned to action last Sunday against San Antonio after missing eight days and three games. On both occasions, Green stepped on someone else's foot.

“That usually happens once or twice a year to any of our guys,” Brooks said of the missteps. “It's just unfortunate it happened to Jeff the same game in which he got back. He's getting better. (Wednesday) felt a lot better than yesterday. I don't see it being a long-term thing."

Green did not play in Wednesday night's 116-99 victory over Houston at Oklahoma City Arena.

SCORING CHAMPS

Thunder small forward Kevin Durant was the Most Valuable Player at the FIBA World Championship in Turkey last summer, but Houston forward Luis Scola was the tournament's leading scorer at 27.1 per game.
