OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Thunder forward Kevin Durant will play Wednesday night against Memphis after sitting out Oklahoma City’s game Monday night against Sacramento with a sprained right big toe.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan said Durant was injured when he accidentally kicked someone at Charlotte last Saturday. Without him, the Thunder lost 116-104 to the Kings.

Durant, the 2013-14 MVP, missed most of last season with a broken bone in his right foot that required three surgeries. He has since returned to form, being named co-Western Conference player of the month for December with teammate Russell Westbrook this week.

Grizzlies guard Mike Conley will sit out with a left Achilles injury, and coach Dave Joerger said it’s unclear when the injury occurred or when he will return. Conley is averaging 15.1 points and 5.8 assists.
