Durant won't take the court Monday against the Timberwolves due to a sprained left big toe, ESPN.com reports.
Durant tested out the ailment during pregame warmups, with hopes of playing, but the toe experienced more discomfort than expected. Consider him day-to-day, which will likely equate to questionable status for Wednesday's contest in New York (if the game avoids postponement). While his replacement in the starting lineup Monday hasn't been announced, Perry Jones could experience a significant uptick in minutes.
