Thunder's Durant: 'I Feel Like I'm The Best Player In The World'

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Thunder forward Kevin Durant has been cleared to play without restriction after recovering from a foot injury.

General manager Sam Presti made the announcement on Wednesday.

Durant, the league MVP and scoring champion in 2013-14, played just 27 games last season because of a broken bone in his right foot. He had surgery in October and returned to play in December with some pain. A screw rubbing against another bone was removed this February.
