OKLAHOMA CITY -

OKC's Thabo Sefolosha returns to the Thunder lineup for Thursday's matchup on the road against Denver.

Head Coach Scott Brooks announced Thursday afternoon that he will start against the Nuggets after missing 23 straight games with what was describes as ‘foot soreness.'

 Sefolosha practiced with the team for the first time Monday and reports say his shooting during the session was lights out.

Oklahoma City (32-10) and Denver are the top two teams in the Northwest, but the Thunder currently lead the Nuggets (24-19) by 8 1/2 games.

Meanwhile, Denver is 6-2 since the All-Star break and is first in the league in scoring at 104.1 points, just ahead of Oklahoma City at 102.5 per game.

Kevin Durant is averaging 27.9 points for OKC, and in 12 games against Denver since 2008-09, he is averaging 32.2 points - his third-highest average against any team.

Oklahoma City has won three straight over the Nuggets after losing 12 of the previous 15 in the series. Oklahoma City's 101-94 victory in Denver on April 5 snapped a seven-game losing streak there.
