Durant was determined to be a game-time decision, and now Phoenix ruled him out 30 minutes before the tip off. The Suns will once again start Keita Bates-Diop in his place.

Durant missed Friday’s 110-89 victory over the Grizzlies due to the injury after playing in the first 15 games. In these games, he has firmly cemented himself in the MVP conversation with averages of 31,4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists. Durant was a late add to the report for this game and was first listed as questionable before being ruled out.

Here he was getting his workout in before the game.

Grayson Allen, who has started all 16 games for the Suns, will also be out for today’s game against the Knicks with an illness. Josh Okogie will replace him in the starting lineup.

Some good news for the Suns is that Drew Eubanks (left ankle sprain) and Yuta Watanabe (left quad contusion) will be available today, coach Frank Vogel said. Eubanks missed Friday’s game, while Watanabe has not played in the last four.

As for the Knicks, coach Tom Thibodeau said that his team will not be missing any players today.
