Phoenix Suns star Kevin Durant was in the starting lineup Wednesday for his home debut against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Durant missed the last 10 contests after spraining his ankle in pregame warmup March 8.

Since joining the Suns in a blockbuster trade from the Brooklyn Nets, the 34-year-old has only played in three games. The 13-time All-Star has averaged 26.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 blocks, and 32.7 minutes for his new team.

Phoenix went 4-6 without Durant in the lineup, including two separate three-game losing streaks, but has won its last two contests.

The Suns are fourth in the Western Conference at 40-35 with seven games left in the season. They lead the fifth-place Los Angeles Clippers by half a game.
