Thunder coach Scott Brooks told reporters this afternoon that Kevin Durant will not play in tonight's contest against the Boston Celtics.
Durant is having lingering shoulder issues from a minor injury suffered in Wednesday's 111-105 victory against San Antonio.
Durant is the NBA's leading scorer averaging 31 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game.
He has been on a tear recently with nine-straight games of 30 points or more.
Second-year forward Perry Jones will start in his place in Boston.
