Thunder star Kevin Durant misses fourth straight game with sprained right ankle

SAN ANTONIO - Thunder star Kevin Durant will miss his fourth straight game with a sprained right ankle.

He sat out again Thursday on the road against the defending champion San Antonio Spurs. Durant was injured last Thursday in a loss at Golden State.

Durant missed the Thunder's first 17 games because of a fracture in his right foot. The reigning NBA Most Valuable Player is averaging 22.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists in nine games this season.
