NEW YORK -- Kevin Durant was in the starting lineup for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night against the New York Knicks.

The Rookie of the Year missed the Thunder's loss to Orlando on Wednesday night because of a sore left ankle, but went through the morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden and the team activated him for the game.

Durant aggravated the injury during a loss to Indiana on Monday night, when he scored a season-high 37 points.
