The Oklahoma City Thunder is back at full strength just in time for the New Year.
Coach Scott Brooks confirmed at Wednesday morning's shoot around that Kevin Durant will be back in the lineup for their New Year's Eve matchup against the Phoenix Suns (18-15).
Durant had missed six straight games following his ankle sprain at the end of the first half against the Golden State Warriors on Dec. 18. The Thunder (15-17) has gone 3-3 over Durant's six-game absence.
Wednesday night's game is scheduled to tipoff at 7 p.m. at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
