San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oklahoma City Thunder list forward Kevin Durant as out for the Christmas Day game against the Spurs in San Antonio.

Durant will sit out his fourth consecutive contest due to a sprained right ankle he suffered last Thursday when stepping on the foot of Golden State's Marreese Speights.

In nine games this season, the reigning NBA MVP is averaging 22.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.6 assists.

Oklahoma City heads into Thursday's game with a 13-16 mark. Durant missed the first 17 games this season recovering from foot surgery.
