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.

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.

Description: Thunder forward Kevin Durant announced he would not play for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup in Spain.
Insight: Durant played a lot of great basketball this season averaging a league-best 32.0 ppg over the regular season and 29.6 ppg in 19 playoff games. It's probably best for the Thunder and fantasy owners if he gets a little rest before the new season begins.

Description: Ten of Kevin Durant's 27 points on Tuesday came in the final three and a half minutes.

Cold4/27/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: Oklahoma City small forward Kevin Durant looked a bit off Saturday against the Grizzlies.
Insight: The 15 points Durant scored were his fewest since the second game of the season when the T-Wolves limited him to 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting. He's shot just 1-of-15 from three-point range over the last two games. We'll see if KD can find his groove Tuesday night in Game 5.

Insight: Durant (23 points on 8-of-13 shooting) said earlier this week he wished the streak was over so it looks like he got exactly what he wanted. Durant's 41-game streak was one of the longest in NBA history, though he would have needed another 65 games just to tie Wilt Chamberlain's record of 106 games set during the 1962-63 campaign.
4/3/2014 10:47:00 PM
Description: Thunder small forward Kevin Durant extended his streak of 25-point games to 39 in a row Thursday in a win over San Antonio.
Insight: Durant, who is a perfect 31-of-31 from the free throw line over his last four games, is now one game away from tying Michael Jordan's streak of 40 in a row. OKC's victory Thursday ended the Spurs' winning streak at 19 games.

Insight: With 42 points on Tuesday, Durant has now gone over the 40-point barrier a whopping 11 times this season. It seems to change daily but for now, Durant is the frontrunner for MVP.
3/9/2014 7:11:00 PM
Description: Kevin Durant's triple-double Sunday against the Lakers was his third of the season.
Insight: Durant's monster box score (27 points, ten rebounds, 12 assists) doesn't tell the whole story as he actually committed a few costly turnovers and missed several important free throws down the stretch. He'll hope to eliminate some of those mistakes Tuesday when the Thunder host Houston.
3/4/2014 10:30:00 PM
Description: Kevin Durant dominated the Sixers for 42 points on 14-of-20 shooting Tuesday night in OKC.
