During the second quarter of the Thunder-Wizards game tonight, Kevin Durant was in visible pain. KD let John Wall run out a turnover without chasing it, and was talking to team doctors. KD didn't re-emerge from the locker room at halftime, and it was revealed that he would not return for the rest of the game. Per Royce Young:

The Thunder went into the second half up by 18, so Durant's presence wasn't exactly needed. Kyle Singler started the second half in Kevin Durant's place. Durant left the game with 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 assists.

Durant can be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the 76ers. If Durant were not able to go, it would likely mean additional minutes for all of the Thunder wings. Anthony Morrow could see additional time, as well. In terms of offensive possessions, it would likely mean more for Westbrook and Ibaka primarily.
