Kevin Durant leaves game hurt
OKLAHOMA CITY -- NBA scoring leader Kevin Durant was helped off the court after spraining his left ankle during the third quarter of the Oklahoma City Thunder's game against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.
Durant collided with Indiana's Tyler Hansbrough on a drive to the basket with 2:44 left in the period and stayed in to hit his two free throws before leaving the game. Two trainers helped him walk through a tunnel toward the locker room.
The Thunder said Durant was not expected to return to the game.
