Reigning MVP Kevin Durant will return to action Tuesday night in New Orleans against the Pelicans after missing every game so far this season with a broken bone in his right foot.
A team spokesman confirmed the move hours before the game.
Durant played in two preseason games, but had surgery on Oct. 16. Nearly seven weeks later, Durant is ready to return.
Last season, Durant led the league with 32 points per game to claim his fourth scoring title in five years.
