Thunder F Kevin Durant to have foot surgery, miss rest of season


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(3/27/2015) The Thunder released a statement from General Manager Sam Presti on Friday, announcing that forward Kevin Durant will undergo another foot surgery and miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season. 

After consulting with two specialists this week, the team and Durant came to the conclusion that a bone graft procedure would be the best approach to repair the Jones fracture that Durant suffered. 

Dr. Martin O'Malley will perform the surgery next week in New York and Durant is expected to return to basketball activities in four-to-six months. Durant averaged 25.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per game before the injury.


Kevin Durant removed from basketball activities with foot issues


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) Thunder general manager Sam Presti announced on Friday that forward Kevin Durant will be removed from basketball activities. He will be further evaluated at a later unknown time, leaving him out indefinitely.

"We've made the decision to remove him from basketball activities. He's not making the progress that we had hoped," Presti said.

When asked about his status for the remainder of the regular season or potentially the postseason, Presti said: "It would be really hard for me to give you exact answers, because we're waiting for those as well."

Durant suffered a Jones fracture in his right foot during the preseason that required surgery. He missed his first 17 games of the season before making his debut on Dec. 2. After being limited to only 27 games, Durant underwent a procedure to reinsert a different screw into his foot in late February, and experienced a recurrence of soreness in his foot, which caused him to sit out Thursday's practice. Now he remains without a timetable for return.

"If (him playing without soreness) takes the rest of the season, or the rest of the playoffs, that's what it takes," Presti said.

Durant averaged 25.4 points and 6.6 rebounds per game before the injury. If he fails to return to the floor, he will have missed a total of 45 games with the injury.

“As we have conveyed, Kevin has experienced increased soreness in his right foot recently and as a result we initiated a process to determine the best way to manage it moving forward. In order to alleviate that discomfort, it was determined after consultation with Dr. Robert Anderson, and after receiving a second opinion from Dr. Martin O’Malley, that because the fracture itself has continued to heal as anticipated, there was an opportunity to address irritation from the screw, and make an adjustment to a different piece of hardware within the foot to relieve the symptoms of his soreness.

"The fracture itself is healing excellently by all accounts and we continue to feel good about the prognosis moving forward, but in the short term as he continued to have this discomfort, we wanted to determine the best way to alleviate it while still promoting the continued healing of the initial injury. 

"He is expected to be re-evaluated within a week to determine when he will return this regular season.”

Thunder SF Kevin Durant against media voting on MVP


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) Thunder small forward Kevin Durant was voted NBA MVP by the media last season, but he believes that players should determine who wins the award, the Houston Chronicle reports.

When asked if former MVPs should vote on the award in the same manner that Heisman winners vote on the winners of that award, Durant said, "You guys get too much power to vote on stuff quite frankly I don’t think you know a lot about, not as much as we know about it. We play against these guys, we battle against these guys, we know what they say on the court, we know how they handle their teams, how they approach the game. Our vote should count. Our opinions should count. I don’t think you guys know as much as we do and I don’t see why you have more power than we do."

Durant added that he believes the media cast votes based on narratives.

"You guys vote on the MVP," Durant said. "MVP I think is about narratives. There’s a lot of guys that have been playing extremely well for years and years and are just starting to get MVP consideration. I think that consistent play sometimes gets a little boring to people. If you look at a guy like James Harden, he’s been doing it for three years, the same thing. People are acting like it’s new. Steph Curry has been doing the same things for three years.

"I guess the narrative around his team and what he is doing is new to everybody, but unless you really watch games and realize what these guys have been doing for years, it’s nothing new. It’s all the same. I guess the hype around them is difference. Of course, everybody gets better, but if you stay consistent, it’s not like they came out of nowhere."

Durant is in New York after being selected as an All-Star reserve. He has played in just 26 of his team's 53 games while dealing with injuries this season, averaging 25.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists.

Such a small part of your body can affect the whole body. It was definitely tough and I had to be mentally strong to get through it. I wanted to play so bad. We were struggling a little bit. But I’m glad I’m back and can help out."

Durant missed two games before returning to action Saturday against Memphis. He noted that he suffered a setback that game trying to play through the discomfort. Now that he's full recovered, he doesn't expect any setbacks moving forward.

"Yeah. I feel like it’s better now. I can push through it," Durant said. "Injuries like that, I’ve been out for so long this year as far as injuries are concerned, so I pushed it when I shouldn’t have. That’s part of the game sometimes, you’re still learning your body and trying to figure out the best way to do it and put myself first. Definitely been a tough year as far as injuries for me. But I’m glad I have the opportunity to play again and it’s nothing too serious."

Durant is averaging 25.1 points and 6.7 rebounds in 22 games this season. Dion Waiters will shift to the bench upon Durant's return.

Oklahoma City is a 6-point home favorite against New Orleans, per VegasInsider.com.
