Kevin Durant is expected to return to action this week

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma City Thunder are making due without Kevin Durant (3-3 since his injury), but they should get a boost this week as he returns to take some of the load off of Russell Westbrook.

The good news from ESPN's Marc Stein:

Durant was not cleared to play in Sunday night's home win over Dallas, but it's believed that either Monday night's visit to Utah or Wednesday's home game against Brooklyn are strong possibilities for his return.

The sooner the better.
