What is going on in pregame warmups these days?
One day after Kevin Durant sustained a potentially significant injury to his ankle while attempting a layup pregame, Jonathan Kuminga rolled his ankle doing the same on Thursday in Memphis. Originally slated to play, Kuminga was ruled out after sustaining the injury.
Kuminga initially hurt the left ankle on Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. The tweak was not enough to knock Kuminga out that night. The young forward returned and scored 21 points in the loss, his second-highest total of the season.
Kuminga joins Gary Payton II (back) and Andrew Wiggins (personal) to the list of unavailable players.
