Durant arrived at the arena for shootaround Wednesday about 45 minutes before the rest of the team to get in some on-the-court work.
"I feel good right now. I plan on playing," he said Wednesday.
The small forward sprained his left ankle Saturday during a win over the Philadelphia 76ers. He then missed Sunday's victory at Brooklyn.
The reigning Finals MVP dropped 40 points on the Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena last season, his first and only game back at Oklahoma City to date.
The crowed chanted "cupcake" all evening, and Durant even engaged in a verbal exchange with Russell Westbrook.
Durant said Tuesday it was a "pretty fun moment to be a part of" and added that he knows what to expect this time around.
"It's just a regular game for me now," he said. "I learned how to tune out the crowd, I learned how to tune out the bulls---."
