Durant to Practice With Team USA

Tuesday, Aug. 11

Durant will return to the court on Tuesday and Wednesday for the Team USA mini camp in Las Vegas, according to Sam Amick of USA Today. However, we won't be playing in Thursday's game, per Amick.  

"I'm feeling great. I can go 100 percent," Durant said, via Bleacher Report's Ethan J. Skolnick.


Durant Increases Training Intensity

Monday, July 20

Anthony Slater of NewsOK.com captured footage of Durant working out and showing off the array of skills that's helped him to multiple NBA scoring titles and a league MVP award:    

Durant was limited to 27 games during the 2014-15 season because of a Jones fracture in his right foot, which required an operation and was estimated in late March to require a four- to six-month recovery period.

In light of that timeline, it appears Durant is on schedule to be on the floor for the Thunder to start this next season. The squad needs its biggest star to have any hope of contending in the loaded West, as Oklahoma City failed to make the playoffs sans Durant last season.
