Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant has revealed that he feels "great" ahead of the 2015-16 season.
The 26-year-old saw his last campaign blighted by a foot injury as he underwent three operations on a stress fracture, which limited him to 27 matches.
However, Durant is adamant that he is back to full fitness for the new season and is confident that he is still the same player he was before his injury problems.
"I feel great, actually," Durant told reporters. "It's really different being out there in a practice setting.
"I haven't been there in a while. It's definitely going to take me some time to really get comfortable out there again.
"I've been injured, but I'm healed now. So I try not to think about it. If I'm on the court, I'm okay. So I'm the same player I was."
Durant was named MVP of the NBA in the 2013-14 season.
