Durant entered the game needing only three points. He knocked down a 12-foot jumper in the first quarter to reach the 15,000-point threshold. He finished with 36 points on 12 of 25 shooting from the field, including 1 of 4 from 3-point range and 1 of 3 from downtown. He also added three rebounds, two assists and one steal while logging a season-high 35 minutes of game action in a 104-92 victory.

Kevin Durant to make his return Tuesday against Pelicans


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) Thunder small forward Kevin Durant will officially make his return Tuesday against the Pelicans. Last season's league MVP will reportedly be on a minutes restriction, which should keep him around 30 minutes, according to coach Scott Brooks.

 "I know the coaches and my teammates are going to be happy I'm off the bench screaming in their ear all game," Durant said.


Kevin Durant's return changes things for OKC


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) With Kevin Durant expected to make his return to action at some point this week, possibly even Tuesday, the Thunder are finally going to be at full strength for the first time this season. Fantasy owners have found some bargains on the Thunder's roster as they have looked for answer, but Durant's return should be the only answer they need.

At various points this season, Perry Jones, Jeremy Lamb and Anthony Morrow have been the waiver-wire pickup du jour, and each has had stretches of utility. However, with Durant nearing a return and Russell Westbrook already back, there's little room left on the perimeter for those guys to score.

Lamb and Morrow will still play important roles as spot-up shooters around the Thunder's stars, but Jones only had value before his injury when he seemed like the natural Durant replacement. At this point, Jones can be freely dropped in all formats, and Morrow and Lamb likely only deserve a roster spot in deeper, category-based formats.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Thunder F Kevin Durant takes part in 'most' of Monday practice


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Durant has made some progress in his recovery from foot surgery and could be back in the starting lineup as early as the end of the week.
