Phoenix Suns forward Kevin Durant (ankle) will return Wednesday versus the Minnesota Timberwolves, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium .
Durant is set to return Wednesday for his first game since spraining his ankle during warmups on March 8. Torrey Craig will likely move back to the Suns' bench and there will be fewer scoring opportunities for Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton.
numberFire's models project KD for 33.4 minutes and 42.4 FanDuel points on Wednesday. In his three games with the Suns, Durant had a 24.0% usage rate and averaged 44.0 FanDuel points per contest.
