In a since-deleted tweet, Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium first reported Saturday that Durant is officially listed as probable after missing the past three games with a thigh contusion.
Durant was injured in the first quarter of Brooklyn's 109-107 loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday. His thigh collided with Trevor Ariza's knee as he was driving to the basket.
Brooklyn ruled Durant out for the remainder of that game, but he wasn't expected to miss an extended period of time. Brian Lewis of the New York Post reported Wednesday the Nets considered the injury to be minor.
The Heat matchup was Durant's fifth appearance back after he missed 23 consecutive games from Feb. 15 to April 5 with a strained left hamstring. The 11-time All-Star has been terrific when in the lineup, averaging 27.3 points on 46.2 percent shooting from three, 6.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game.
The Nets lead the Eastern Conference with a 40-20 record.
