The OKC Thunder are almost whole again: first it was Russell Westbrook, and now Kevin Durant is ready to suit up.

After undergoing surgery back in mid-October to repair a fractured right foot, KD will make his season debut Tuesday night against the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Thunder have stumbled to a 5-12 record without their two All-Stars at full strength.

From the press release and The Oklahoman:

Durant participated in a full week of practices leading up to Tuesday’s announcement from Brooks. Durant’s last five practice sessions all involved contact with no setbacks.

 

Durant makes his debut against a Pelicans team that is currently 7-8 – fifth in the loaded Southwest Division. The Thunder is third in the Northwest Division, eight games behind first-place Portland (13-4).

 

If the playoffs started today … there would be no Thunder playoffs.
