The Brooklyn Nets have already pretty much ruled Kevin Durant out for the season after he suffered a torn Achilles during the NBA Finals last June.
They might want to rethink that. A video has gone viral of Durant practicing. To put it plainly, he is showing absolutely no ill-effects from the torn Achilles. KD is out here looking 100% healthy.
A normal timeline would likely have Durant back some time in late March. However, Brooklyn wants to protect its franchise cornerstone after signing him to a four-year, $164 million deal back in July.
For their part, the Nets have struggled with Durant sidelined. They are currently 23-28 on the season and are the seventh seed in a top-heavy Eastern Conference.
