OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant will miss his second straight game because of a sprained right ankle Sunday night when the Thunder face the New Orleans Pelicans.

Durant, last season’s MVP, sprained the ankle Thursday against the Golden State Warriors when he stepped on Marreese Speights’ foot, and he missed the next game Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Durant is feeling better, but he is day-to-day.

Durant missed the first 17 games of the season with a fractured bone in his right foot, and the Thunder went 5-12. Oklahoma City won seven of its first eight after his return. He is averaging 22.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists.
