NBC Sports—March 31, 2015

The Thunder ruled Kevin Durant out for the season less than a week ago, after he continued to experience soreness in his foot and it was discovered that he would need an additional surgery to more permanently fix the issue.

"Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant underwent successful bone graft surgery today for the fifth metatarsal of his right foot," Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti announced.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Martin O'Malley with Thunder medical personnel present at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Durant will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season and is expected to return to full basketball activities in the next four to six months.
