Kevin Durant suffered an ankle injury during pregame warmups ahead of his debut with the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.
The video showed Durant getting ready for his long-awaited first game as a Suns player at the Footprint Center when he appeared to slip while attempting a dunk.
After sitting on the court for a few seconds, Durant stood up and completed his routine before heading back to the locker room. According to Doug Haller of The Athletic, Durant tightened his sneakers before practicing for another 10 minutes.

However, after he returned to the locker room, Durant was unable to fully participate against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Suns fans have seen Durant in three games since his trade from the Brooklyn Nets, and he’s been at his usual stellar level.

It took him a little while to get back on the court as he continued to struggle with a sprained MCL since January. But after he went against the Charlotte Hornets, Durant went 10 of 15 from the floor for 23 points with six rebounds and two assists.
He dropped 20 points in the next game against the Chicago Bulls. But he had his best game against former teammate Kyrie Irving against the Dallas Mavericks, going 12 of 17 from the field and 10 of 11 at the charity stripe for 37 points.
The Suns have won all three games with Durant in their lineup.

Phoenix still boasts Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton, who could make up for what Durant lost offensively. However, with the arrival of Durant, the Suns have to hope it’s nothing long-term.
The Suns, the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference at 36-29 on Wednesday, have won seven of their last 10 games.
