The Oklahoma City Thunder announces that Durant will miss the rest of the season due to a Jones fracture injury in his right foot. He will undergo a bone graft procedure to address the fracture, the recovery for which usually takes four to six months. Thunder GM Sam Presti:
It was the consensus of the specialists team, in addition to a collective decision by Kevin, his representation and the Thunder, that to address the setback of the fracture site, a bone graft procedure would be the most proactive and recommended approach.
Durant has been limited to only 27 games during the season due to the injury.
