(The Sports Xchange) – Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant missed Sunday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets with a sprained left ankle, the team announced.

Durant suffered the injury during Saturday night’s 124-116 road win over the Philadelphia 76ers. He scored 27 points on 11-of-20 shooting with five rebounds and two blocks in 33 minutes.

Durant is considered day-to-day and the injury is not believed to be serious.

He is averaging 24.9 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 15 games this season.

The Warriors travel to Oklahoma City to play the Thunder on Wednesday. The game would be Durant’s second in Oklahoma City against his former team since joining the Warriors last season.

Washington Wizards guard John Wall missed Sunday’s game against the Toronto Raptors with a swollen left knee.

There is a chance Wall could be ready to play Monday against the Milwaukee Bucks.

He is averaging 19.9 points and 9.3 assists per game.

Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz, the first overall pick in this year’s NBA draft, will miss at least two more weeks with a shoulder injury, the team announced.

Fultz has played just four games this season, averaging 6.0 points, and has not played since an Oct. 23 game against Detroit because of the shoulder problem.

Fultz will be re-examined in two to three weeks to determine whether he is ready to return.
