Kevin Durant expected to miss 6-8 weeks with right foot fracture
The Thunder announced this morning that Kevin Durant has a right foot fracture that will will require surgery and probably put him on the bench for 6-8 weeks. Here’s the statement put out by the Thunder GM.
“After practice yesterday, Kevin made us aware of discomfort in his right foot. 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.”
