The Oklahoman reported Durant did some light shooting at practice, according to coach Scott Brooks, but hasn't done any more than that. He is a game-time decision Tuesday at Memphis.
 
Durant was 1-of-9 shooting in the first half against Milwaukee before suffering the fall. He finished the game with 33 points and was 7-of-9 after the injury.
