Kevin Durant Fully Cleared for Training Camp

by September 23, 2015

The Slim Reaper is back—OKC Thunder GM Sam Presti confirmed Wednesday that Kevin Durant has been medically-cleared to take part in the team’s training camp.

The 2014 MVP will have no restrictions placed on him and his surgically-repaired right foot.

Durant, 26, has been chomping at the bit to prove that he is still, arguably, the world’s greatest player.

We’ll find out soon enough.

Per the AP:

Thunder forward Kevin Durant has been cleared to play without restriction after recovering from a foot injury.


Durant, the league MVP and scoring champion in 2013-14, played just 27 games last season because of a broken bone in his right foot. He had surgery in October and returned to play in December with some pain. A screw rubbing against another bone was removed this February.


After more pain, Durant consulted with three foot and ankle specialists and had a bone graft in March. […] Durant averaged 25.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists last season. Without his full-time services, the Thunder struggled and missed the playoffs despite Russell Westbrook’s excellent play.
