Kevin Durant Returns to OKC Thunder Lineup

Somehow, someway, Kevin Durant has rehabbed his fractured foot and is ready to play NBA caliber basketball.  This, just 4 days after Russell Westbrook returned to the Oklahoma City Thunder lineup after recovering from a hand injury.  Westbrook dropped 32 on the New York Knicks, adding 8 assists and 7 rebounds in his return, in just 24 minutes! Fantasy basketball owners can only hope for the same from Durant.  

According to, the Thunder have featured a lineup of Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Lance Thomas, Serge Ibaka and Steven Adams for 114 minutes this season.  There is a good reason why the the Thunder are 5-12 and are 30th in the NBA in points per game.

If Durant can stay healthy the rest of the season, and doesn't take a night off, he can still play in 65 games, make him well worth the 1st or 2nd round draft pick used on him.
