12/2/2014 1:40:00 PM
Description: Thunder Coach Scott Brooks has announced a starting lineup for Tuesday and forward Kevin Durant is going to play.
Insight: The original timetable was 6-to-8 week and this is in that window. Fantasy owners thought they would lose about 20 games when they drafted him and it's been 17 games. We can't wait to get his 32 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 5.5 apg back on the floor and a matchup against Anthony Davis would be great viewing for fans and fantasy owners.

Insight: The original timetable was 6-to-8 week and this is in that window. Fantasy owners thought they would lose about 20 games when they drafted him and it's been 17 games. We can't wait to get his 32 ppg, 7.4 rpg, 5.5 apg back on the floor and a matchup against Anthony Davis would be great viewing for fans and fantasy owners.

10/24/2014 2:49:00 PM
Description: Thunder forward Kevin Durant went through practice Monday and has a big evaluation set for around Thanksgiving.
Insight: The biggest concern for owners is that he is going to comeback too soon from the injury (6-to-8 week original timetable). However, assuming Durant will be his normal self, it's hard not to want him on the floor. The Thunder's next game is friday, but that doesn't seem likely. Think next week.
 
10/17/2014 4:33:00 PM
Description: Thunder forward Kevin Durant is now an extremely interesting pick for the upcoming fantasy basketball season.
Insight: As a result of his foot injury, Durant has dropped down from being the consensus number-one overall pick, to being drafted in the second round. The biggest concern for owners is that he is going to comeback too soon from the injury (6-to-8 week timetable). However, assuming Durant will be his normal self, his averages will be amongst the best in the NBA, and drafting him the first round is not a ridiculous move for owners to make.
 
10/12/2014 11:34:00 AM
Description: Thunder forward Kevin Durant has a fractured foot, and will most likely require surgery.
Insight: There is no set return date, but the injury is being classified as a "Jones" fracture, which typically requires surgery, and a six-to-eight week recovery time. This will no doubt shake up the beginning of fantasy drafts, however owners should still take the reigning MVP somewhere in the first round.
