Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant told reporters that facing his former team is no big deal.

"It's just a regular game for me now," the reigning NBA Finals MVP said on Tuesday, one day before the Warriors (13-4) visit the Oklahoma City Thunder (7-9). "I learned how to tune out the crowd, I learned how to tune out the (expletive)."

Durant tuned out the Thunder last season when he scored 40 points in his return to Chesapeake Arena. The game marked his first contest back in Oklahoma City since spending eight seasons with the franchise that selected him with the second overall pick of the 2007 draft.

The 29-year-old former league MVP participated in a full practice on Tuesday and is considered questionable to play versus the Thunder.

"I don't know," Durant said when asked if he'll be able to play. "We'll see how it feels in the morning but right now, it feels good."

Durant sprained his left ankle during Saturday's 124-116 win against the Philadelphia 76ers. He sat out the next night in Golden State's 118-111 victory at Brooklyn.
