MILWAUKEE &mdash Kevin Durant will not play tonight against Milwaukee, Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks said.

It is the second consecutive game Durant has missed because of a sprained left ankle.

"He's getting better," Brooks said. "He's still day-to-day."

Second-year shooting guard James Harden again will start in place of Durant.

Forward Jeff Green also will miss tonight's game against the Bucks. It is the seventh game in the past eight that Green has missed due to a sprained ankle.

Center Nenad Krstic will remain in the starting lineup. Krstic left Friday's game at Boston late in the fourth quarter with what team officials called a bone bruise on his left leg.
