Kevin Durant out 6 to 8 weeks with foot injury


Kevin Durant has a fracture in his right foot and will miss six to eight weeks. The Oklahoma City Thunder released a statement from general manager Sam Presti on the status of the current league MVP.

“After practice yesterday, Kevin made us aware of discomfort in his right foot,” GM Sam Presti said in a statement released to media. “We proceeded to perform the necessary imagining studies to determine the cause of his discomfort. At this stage, Kevin has been diagnosed with a Jones fracture. Traditional treatment of this injury requires a surgical procedure and recent NBA cases have resulted in a return to play in 6-8 weeks. We are in the process of collaboratively evaluating the most appropriate next steps with Kevin, his representatives, and Thunder medical personnel. Until a course of action is determined, we are unable to provide a timeline specific to Kevin’s case.”

KD had his experience on life without Russell Westbrook, looks like the roles will reverse to kick off this season. Is the window closing on the Thunder’s title hopes? The West is heavy from 1-10.
