Here was (Oklahoma City Thunder) Kevin Durant, high volume scorer, arguably the world’s best player, walking around just like anyone else on the first day of the Orlando Pro Summer League, walking around just fine after three surgeries to correct his problematic right foot.

But first things first: how’s the foot?“

We’re close to Phase 3 now,” Durant happily reported. “A three-phase rehab. It’s going well. I’m jumping when I’m shooting. I’m not quite running and cutting yet but I’m almost there. So it’s going well. I’m excited.”

Durant said he’s still on track to be cleared for full basketball activities sometime next month, and barring any setbacks the 2014 MVP should be a go by opening night.
