The Brooklyn Nets have already pretty much ruled Kevin Durant out for the season after he suffered an Achilles injury 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 Achilles injury. KD is out here looking 100 percent healthy.

A normal timeline would likely have Durant back sometime 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.
